Arsenic & Poor Taste

Hello Friends,

I come to you on a rather serious matter. Last Thursday it was reported that many of the beloved cheap wine brands have high levels of inorganic arsenic. I have featured several of these brands on this website. In addition, if you live in a state where alcohol is sold in Trader Joes (I do not..I might be bitter), many of the TJ brands were affected. There is currently a lawsuit regarding this matter but, to be safe, I would avoid the brands I have listed below.

Since I care about all of you, the wines reported to have high inorganic arsenic are listed below (source). For every wine that I love, there is gif portraying my honest reaction to this knew. I was literally yelling “Oh why god!” in my apartment. I am not joking, I was yelling.
