LOS ANGELES , January 16, 2012 () – The. U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) found no measurable amounts of a banned fungicide in three orange juice samples, with several more samples awaiting test results, Bloomberg reported Jan. 16.

The results of the remaining samples are due within three weeks. The FDA said that low levels of the fungicide are not a health risk and that no juice is being recalled. FDA spokeswoman Siobhan DeLancey said the tested juice is being released into the U.S.

The FDA said that on Dec. 28, it was alerted by a juice company that detected low levels of carbendazim, a banned fungicide, in both its juice and its competitors’ juices. On Jan. 11, the Coca-Cola Co., which makes the Minute Maid brand, said it was the company that alerted the FDA.
