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. Health Canada has conducted a scientific assessment, provided below, which supports updating the maximum level (ML) for total arsenic in fruit juice and fruit nectar. Health Canada is proposing to lower the existing ML to values that are as low as reasonably achievable based on the fruit juice and nectar type.

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 or naturally present in foods or, in some cases, intentionally added for fraudulent purposes. Establishing a prohibition or a maximum level (ML) is a form of risk management that may be employed to eliminate or reduce exposure to a particular chemical contaminant in foods.
