P.M. BRIEFING : Test Finds Apple Products Alar-Free

From Times wire services

Makers of apple sauces and juices presented test results today showing the products to be virtually free of Alar, a chemical that environmentalists say heightens the risk of cancer in children.

The Processed Apple Institute, which represents most of the producers of apple sauces and juices, said today tests covering 4,623 samples and a cross section of brand names revealed only eight cases in which detectable levels of Alar were found in the product.
