Brazilian and U.S. juice industry groups had asked the FDA to allow higher levels of the fungicide, carbendazim, until June 2013 to allow the industry time to switch to another option.
Carbendazim is illegal on all citrus in the United States, but commonly used in Brazil, the world's top orange juice exporter, to combat mold on orange trees. It is permitted in juice imports to the European Union, Br

Well that doesn't make sense.

How is the FDA going to kill off all the US citizens if they keep regulating low/lower levels of toxins in the food supply?

Well that's good. I was starting to lose face in this whole "overlords at the FDA trying to kill us" thing.

I don't drink orange juice because I'm allergic to sulfites or fungicide or something in it since I was a young child. One of my friends told me that OJ never goes bad in the fridge. I had a bottle of OJ for making an orange sauce in my fridge. My friend swore it would be just fine....even though it's over a year old. It is. I guess the stuff has so much fungicide that it never goes bad just like McDonald's food. Anyone want some OJ?
