CVS - Gold Emblem Juice for 99¢

*** IMPORTANT *** This juice was featured  on Consumer Reports in November 2011 for a story spotlighting lead and arsenic levels in juices.  They tested 88 samples and found that 10% of them had arsenic levels that exceeded the federal drinking-water standard of 10 parts per billion (ppb) and 25% had lead levels higher than the FDA’s bottled-water limit of 5 ppb.

Here were their finding for the Gold Emblem juice:

Lead content (apple): 2.9 ppb – 5.6 ppb
Lead content (grape): 6.5 ppb – 8.6 ppb

Note: This report was from over a year ago so I’m not sure how it compares now.  However, you’ll likely want to practice moderation if you drink this or give it to your kids.
