New lawsuit claims budget bottles of wines contain high levels of arsenic

Posted: Updated:

A lawsuit filed Thursday claims many budget bottles of wine contain high levels of arsenic.

The brands named in the lawsuit include Franzia, Trader Joe's Two-Buck Chuck, Sutter Home and Wine Cube.

The lawsuit was filed in California and claims that some wines have up to four or five times the maximum amount of arsenic the Environmental Protection Agency allows in drinking water.

Arsenic is a carcinogen that can cause problems with the heart, lungs and nervous system.

The Wine Institute says all wines on the market are safe.
