Consumer Reports “tracked down and reviewed hundreds of public records and test reports from bottled water brands, and from various federal and state regulators. [CR] found that several popular brands sell bottled water with arsenic levels at or above 3 ppb; current research suggests that amounts above that level are potentially dangerous to drink over extended periods of time. CR believes the federal limit for bottled water should be revised to 3 ppb from the current federal standard of 10 ppb. In total, CR identified 11 brands out of more than 130 that either self-reported or, based on tests [CR] commissioned, had detectable amounts of arsenic. Of those, six had levels of 3 ppb or higher.”
According to Consumer Reports these brands are:
- Starkey (owned by Whole Foods)
- Peñafiel (owned by Keurig Dr Pepper)
- Crystal Geyser Alpine Spring Water
- Volvic (owned by Danone)
- Crystal Creamery
