Franzia, Trader Joe’s Sued Over Levels Of Arsenic In Wine

Franzia, Trader Joe’s Sued Over Levels Of Arsenic In Wine – http://huff.to/1BddGa5

With low levels it’s about cumulative exposure over time, which is why levels in drinking water are critical.

Unless one drinks like a fish with one brand of wine that’s unlikely to be a problem unless the arsenic levels are huge.

Since there is likely nothing they can do if the arsenic is in the ground they grow in, what’s the remedy? Take the wines off market?

It seems to be an injunctive relief issue as nobody can tie actual damage to the wines, and that seems to be in the domain of regulators, so I’m having trouble seeing a cause of action here. 

If they can succeed, think of all the more unhealthy foods out there, such as fast foods.

I’d be moving to strike as disclosing no cause of action.   The courts aren’t there to turn every private citizen into a regulator with the same standing as a government regulator.
