Many Michigan families keep juice on hand as a healthy drink choice. However recent studies show that some juice choices may do more harm than good. One brand has now voluntarily recalled their juice in Michigan stores that could make you sick.


Popular Juice Now Being Recalled In Michigan Stores

According to USA Today, a popular juice brand recently voluntarily recalled one lot of their brand of apple juice. Martinelli's issued a recall to retailers that carry the apple juice to 'immediately discontinue distributing and selling the identified lot of the one-liter bottles of Martinelli’s Apple Juice.' According to the statement, the product is being recalled over concerns of high levels of arsenic. The voluntary recall comes after samples from one single lot of the juice tested above the FDA guidance level for inorganic arsenic in the juice.
