The Liberty School District has pulled apple juice from their shelves after a popular TV host claimed there were unsafe levels of arsenic in the drink.  Dr. Oz announced on his show that traces of arsenic were found in apple juice concentrate from countries like China, Chile, Brazil, and others.  The food service supervisor at the district says he didn't want to take any chances at harming students if Oz's claims were true.  He pulled the juice after looking at the labels and discovering that it contained concentrate from both China and Chile.  The Food and Drug Administration has since issued a report disputing Oz's claims.  They say the lab method used in the report mentioned by Oz were inaccurate.  Therefore, people have no reason to worry about drinking apple juice.
