According to the Associated Press, chickens given the drug are actually positive for inorganic arsenic.The issue has been swept for years, FDA finally confirmed that chicken sold in markets contains arsenic. In high doses arsenic is a toxic chemical that causes cancer. The real problem is the origin of the arsenic, or the way in which it ends up in the chicken meat you eat.

According to FDA findings,chicken meat sold in the supermarkets, half of the tested chickens had inorganic arsenic in their liver, and this it the most toxic form of this cancerous chemical.
Individuals who consume large amounts of rice which contains arsenic, experience change in the cells which leads to cancer development, according to a study published in The Journal of the American Medical Association.Arsenic causes Bowen disease (squamous cell carcinoma in situ); invasive squamous cell carcinoma; basal cell carcinoma on the skin; and sometimes even cancers of the internal organs, including kidneys, bladder,lungs, and liver, according to the most recent reports.
Arsenic, has extremely toxic effects on fetuses and children,according to to the University of South Carolina, Department of Environmental Health Services, Problematic issue  is actually the arsenic added to the chicken. Namely, arsenic is intentionally mixed with the chicken food.More than 70% chickens are fed with arsenic in order to stimulate faster growth on less food, and it also gives healthy color of chicken, turkey and hog meat.
Pfizer was asked to stop the production of Roxarsone, a drug which contains toxic arsenic and is added to chicken feed in order to make the meat look fatter and have a nice pink color.
 “The agency said it recently conducted a study of 100 broiler chickens that detected inorganic arsenic at higher levels in the livers of chickens treated with 3-Nitro compared with untreated chickens … Pfizer said sale of 3-Nitro would be stopped by early July in order to allow animal producers to transition to other treatments.”reported The Wall Street Journal.
FDA still asserts that chicken contains safe amount of arsenic and that it is safe to eat,regardless of the fact that this product is recalled from the stores throughout the US.
