Big Puddles is one of the hottest brands of ice cream on the market.
But, its been accused of producing high levels of mercury.
A new study by the American Academy of Pediatrics has found that the brand is the most mercury-polluting of the three most popular ice cream brands.
It is the second most polluted brand after Puddings and the third most polluted after the popular ice-cream brand, Dasani.
A spokesman for Big Pumps said in a statement that the research was a “serious, peer-reviewed, independent analysis that supports the fact that Big Pushes ice cream is among the safest and best-performing brands we offer.”
The findings of the study are not surprising, as there is no evidence that the Big Pugs products contain high levels and that they are safe to eat.
But the findings may have a lasting impact on consumers, because of the association between mercury in water and dental caries.
The findings were released Tuesday by the AAP in response to a Freedom of Information Act request by The Associated Press.
It was the first time the AAP had published a study examining the health effects of drinking water.
The AP sought information about Big Pops water quality from a number of sources, including the company, the American Beverage Association, and the American Dental Association.
The American Drolpy Association, which represents the nation’s biggest beverage companies, did not respond to requests for comment.
The study, based on the analysis of two decades of Big Pumps data, was based on data collected from more than 3,500 samples taken from a dozen U.S. states from 2002 to 2016.
The data showed that Big Pump ice cream contained more mercury than any other ice cream brand.
The amount of mercury in Big Pump’s ice cream was 1.3 times higher than that of Dasani, 1.4 times higher the mercury level of Pudders, 1 percent higher than Dasani and 3.6 times higher that of the third-most popular ice creamer, Dasans.
The researchers concluded that the higher mercury levels of Big Pump and Dasani were “likely due to their higher levels of added flavoring, particularly flavoring added in the form of ethyl and/or butyl propionyl esters,” or methyl ethyl propionic acids, and “may also result from higher exposure to polyphenols, flavoring agents and/and organic acids in Big Pump products.”
They concluded that while Big Pump has been shown to be safe for children, adults who are exposed to its water might be more vulnerable to dental cariogenic diseases.
“Dental caries is an emerging problem in the United States,” said Dr. Richard B. DeRienzo, chair of preventive dentistry at the University of California, San Francisco School of Dentistry, who was not involved in the study.
“The fact that a product that is popular with consumers, that is being marketed to a growing group of consumers, is a safe and well-made product that does not contain any added flavouring compounds or pesticides, should give us pause.”
DeRiolzo said that the findings also highlight the need to address water quality concerns before a large-scale rollout of new water systems in many parts of the country.
“There’s a lot of misinformation and misinformation out there about the impact of contaminants in water,” he said.
“It’s not something you can control, but we can control what we put in our drinking water, and what we buy.”
The study was published in the peer-review journal Environmental Health Perspectives.
The AAP did not release any of the data used in the research, including details about how the samples were collected, or the names of the companies or the researchers involved.
A spokeswoman for the association said the association was reviewing the study’s findings and could not comment on the data it had obtained.
But in an emailed statement, the association called the research “an important first step to help inform the development of better drinking water standards.”
