Avoidable arsenic commonly added to chicken feed;
Arsenic-free chicken available

Minneapolis ­

Brand name chicken products sold in American supermarkets and
fast food restaurants are widely contaminated with arsenic, according to
independent test results released today by
the Institute for Agriculture and Trade Policy (IATP).

Testing of 155 samples from uncooked supermarket
chicken products found 55 percent carried detectable
arsenic. Arsenic was more than twice as prevalent in
conventional brands of supermarket chicken as in
certified organic and other ³premium² brands.

All 90 fast food chicken products tested by IATP
also contained detectable arsenic.
