And e.coli in Canadian meat. Not that worries us, but when I think about all those cows that suffered, just to have their meat thrown out.

I know, it's devastating, the rice info was posted here, but this time it was a Consumer Reports link. My folks actually subscribed us to that magazine so our issue showed up with the headline on the cover :(

p.s. the dog in your avatar, oh how painfully cute he/she is!

"Based on data and scientific literature available now, FDA is not recommending that consumers change their consumption of rice and rice products at this time, but that people eat a balanced diet containing a wide variety of grains."

I'm totally not stopping nor reducing eating rice. I love rice.

IMHO, this is more of a public health/large scale food supply safety issue than a reason to change what we eat on an individual level. There is currently no evidence that these levels of arsenic are harmful. There is also not a lot of evidence that arsenic is not present in lots of other foods. It is always a good idea to eat a varied diet, but I don't see any reason to avoid rice at this point.

It concerns me because my baby's food is thickened with rice (she won't take it otherwise). :(

I'm still giving rice cereal to my baby. But also oatmeal cereal. And soon another kind too, just to mix it up.
