    Tbf, it'd be impossible to eat a high enough volume of the ice cream to get toxic levels.

    US Ben and Jerry's has similar levels (1.74 parts per billion) and according to this NYT article a 75 pound child would need to eat 145,000 8oz servings of the stuff just to reach the limit set by the US EPA. That's a lot of ice cream.

    Been around for a couple of months and it's bad science being used to attack a company for not being 100% organic. Entertaining given Ben and jerrys have been on their side with the rubbish about the need to label gm foods.
