A class action lawsuit claiming that consumers were exposed to unsafe levels of arsenic in wine was filed in California Superior Court on March 19, 2015. Beveragegrades, a lab in Denver, tested 1,306 varieties of wine and found that 83 of them contained levels of arsenic that exceed California’s legal limit for arsenic in drinking water. The results were also confirmed by two other labs.
The lawsuit claims that winemakers exposed consumers to dangerous levels of arsenic and failed to warn of potential risks. Low cost white and blush wines were found to contain the highest levels of arsenic. Popular wine brands named in the lawsuit include Trader Joe’s Two-Buck Chuck White Zinfandel, Franzia, Sutter Home, Wine Cube, Cupcake, Beringer and Vendage.
