About 70% of poultry raised in the U.S. has been fed Arsenic Based drugs

In 2011 the FDA asked Pfizer to discontinue their animal drug 3-Nitro® (Roxarsone) that contains arsenic, after they discovered that chicken treated with this drug had increased levels of inorganic arsenic in their liver comparing to untreated chickens. The other company that has admitted to using arsenic in an animal drug is Zoetis, and they promised to remove this product by 2016. The FDA did not admit or disprove the 70% claim, and it is unknown how many animals were treated by arsenic-containing drugs. Source: fda.gov
