anyone following the updated baby's only news?

nature's one posted on their website on july 31 that all of their formulas now have undetectable amounts of arsenic. this is the letter...wondering if anyone has any thoughts on this/advice on whether to use this product etc

Lewis Center, Ohio – Nature’s One®, the leader in organic medical nutrition™ continues to
pursue its mission to make organic better. Today the company confirms its organic-compliant
filtration technology reduces speciated arsenic found in organic brown rice syrup to undetectable
“Nature’s One was founded on the principle of ensuring our products are formulated with the
purest ingredients possible,” says Nature’s One CEO, Jay Highman. “Our advanced process
establishes the highest purity standard for rice used in organic infant foods and formulas.”
“The benefits of organic brown rice syrup are well-established. It provides an essential source of
energy to support rapid brain and muscle development the first 3 years of life,” adds Highman.
This year researchers published health concerns regarding arsenic levels found in infant formulas,
baby foods, and fruit juices sold in the United States.1 Scientists assert that exposure to arsenic is
unavoidable—it can be found in the air we breathe, the water we drink, and even in breast milk.2
The EPA established a maximum safe limit for arsenic in drinking water at 10 parts per billion,
which is based on an estimate of daily water consumption over a lifetime of exposure.3 Currently
there are no FDA regulations that define permissible levels of arsenic in foods.† Nature’s One
patent-pending technology filters environmental arsenic in organic brown rice syrup to
undetectable levels at testing limits of less than 4 parts per billion.
Highman challenges other infant formula and baby food manufacturers to begin testing for and
eliminating potentially harmful environmental pollutants from their ingredients, as well. “It is also
critical that our industry stop using controversial additives in infant formula and baby foods, such
as hexane-extracted DHA and ingredients derived from genetically-modified organisms. It’s
everyone’s responsibility to take extra precautions in order to protect our most vulnerable
consumers—infants and toddlers.”
