Suit alleges some wines contain illegal, dangerous levels of arsenic
A new lawsuit alleges many inexpensive wines made and distributed in California contain illegal and dangerously high levels of arsenic.
The suit, filed in Los Angeles named dozens of brands.
The plaintiffs allege the wineries knowingly produced, marketed, and sold arsenic contaminated wines.
The suit says those wineries failed to warn customers about the potential danger.
It seeks unspecified damages and a court order directing the wineries to correct the alleged poor practices.
Brands named in the suit include:
- Menage a Trois
- Sutter Home
- Wine Cube
- Charles Shaw
- Glen Ellen
