Why do we feature it on our products?
Metals such as arsenic, cadmium, lead and mercury are naturally occurring chemical compounds. They can be present at various levels in the environment, e.g. soil, water and atmosphere. Metals can also occur as residues in food because of their presence in the environment, as a result of human activities such as farming, industry or car exhausts or from contamination during food processing and storage.
