The FDA says it isn’t worried about the safety of juice, but it is stepping up testing for a fungicide that has been detected at low levels in orange juice, the AP reports. At issue is the fungicide cabendazim. The AP reports:
Carbendazim is not currently approved for use on citrus in the U.S., but is used in Brazil, which exports orange juice to the United States. Brazil is the biggest producer of oranges in the world, according to the Agriculture Department.
