6. Apple Juice:

Watch out before drinking apple juice. Consumer Reports and the FDA in the US found that there were exceeding levels of arsenic in available apple juices. The reason why arsenic is present in apples is because of the soil the trees are grown in. The soil which contains arsenic contaminates the fruit which contaminates the juice.

 

7. Perrier:

In 1990, benzene caused this company to recall its product. The company still alleged that there was less benzene than in cigarettes. Angry consumers formed a lawsuit against the giant saying they knew their products were tainted and sold them anyways.

 

8. Bolthouse Farms Carrot Juice:

Organic seems marketable, especially for those wishing to go for healthy choices. Andy Vale of Toronto bought the drink and suffered from botulism which caused paralysis and breathing problems for him and his wife. The company issued a recall after 7 cases of poisoning occurred in Canada and the United States.

Botulism is a disease that is caused by a toxin produced by Clostridium botulinum (bacterium).

 

9. Coca Cola milk drinks.

Coca Cola milk drinks in China were found to contain methomyl and thiodicarb. These chemicals are used in pesticides. The milk drinks were Minute Maid Super Milky drinks. One boy died from poisoning while 2 others were affected.
