Arsenic is naturally occurring in the environment, and very low levels are present in various foods. Elevated arsenic exposure from drinking water has been associated with a variety of serious adverse health effects, with potential effects noted in vulnerable populations such as infants and children. Rice and rice-containing products are a major contributor to dietary exposure to inorganic arsenic in all ages, including infants and young children. In June 2020, Health Canada’s Food Directorate issued a Notice of Modification (NOM, NOM/ADM C-2020-1) to add maximum levels (ML) for inorganic arsenic in polished (white) and husked (brown) rice.

Food contaminants and other adulterating substances are chemicals that may be present in foods at levels that could impact the overall safety and/or quality of foods. These substances can either be inadvertently present in foods or, in some cases, intentionally added for fraudulent purposes. Establishing a prohibition or maximum level (ML) is a form of risk management that may be employed to reduce exposure to a particular chemical contaminant in foods.
