Deb--I'd never heard it before either, so I googled it and found information all going back to one report issued by the food safety agency in the UK (similar to our FDA I guess?).

This is a pretty good summary of all the info;

http://mickirose.wordpress.com/2009/06/10/arsenic-in-rice-milk-%E2%80%93-is-this-true/

I think it is one of those minerals (?) that appears in the soil and as the rice grows, it picks it up and stores it. I guess a bit like oily fish picking up mercury from the sea.

Hope this helps!

Wow, that's interesting. Thanks for sharing that. Do they have anything to say about the practice of giving baby rice as a first food to babies then?

Not as far as I am aware. I think it has to do with the cooking etc.
You know, I never really thought about it in actual rice!

I did read something about the fact that china (of all places!) won't allow most US produced rice baby cereals in because they contain too much arsenic by their standards.
