FDA finds toxic levels of arsenic for products at Yakima Valley apple juice plant

An apple juice plant in Yakima Valley was found in serious violations during a recent inspection by the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA), the federal agency confirmed.

An examination of samples of apple juice collected from Valley Processing Inc. revealed inorganic arsenic more than eight times higher than the maximum limit set by the FDA.

According to the newly published report, one sample collected from the plant was found containing inorganic arsenic 88.1 parts per billion (ppb). The federal agency recommends no more than 10 ppb.

LIGO will detect up to 1,000 black hole collisions annually: astronomers predict

The Laser Interferometer Gravitational-wave Observatory (LIGO) will detect as many as 1,000 collisions and mergers of black holes annually once it attains full sensitivity sometime early next decade, astronomers have predicted.

The prediction, which recently published online in the journal Nature, is based on computer simulations of more than one billion evolving binary stars and information provided by the most recent astronomical & astrophysical observations.
