83 Bottles Of Wine On The Shelf: RE: Arsenic In Wine Lawsuit

Remember the lawsuit alleging that 83 wine brands were in violation of California labeling laws, with the plaintiffs claiming that the wineries had a responsibility to warn consumers of the risk of high levels of arsenic found in the wine? I often thought about it, and just today decided to see where that stood, not realizing how much time had passed. Well, the case was dismissed. The judge ruled that the hazardous labeling on all wine bottles was sufficient given that there were no government studies proving that trace amounts of arsenic in wine posed a health risk.

The companies apparently never did deny the arsenic claims, neither did any stores remove any of the wine from the shelves in the name of public safety.

The plaintiffs vowed to continue the fight. Just in case you were wondering as I did at the time, which bottles from which companies when tested showed, what were reported as containing, high levels of arsenic. Here they are: You make up your own mind.

#ANIMAL-FREE SOUS-CHEF

Did you know that many wine companies use egg whites and/or potassium caseinate (an animal milk protein) to purify their wines? They discovered years ago that unwanted particles in the wine would stick to these substances when added to the wine, making the removal of them easier, leaving a pure and clarified product.

You probably already know that food manufacturers have to label products made in a facility that uses milk and eggs, even though the actual recipe of the animal-free product you buy doesn’t contain animal products. It’s because some of the animal product, which also happens to be an allergen, ends up in your vegan product because it’s made on the same machinery – even though the policy is to clean the manufacturing machinery between recipes.
