The total arsenic concentrations in crab butter are similar to those obtained in the previous analyses. Inorganic arsenic was detected in all three samples of crab butter. The highest concentration of inorganic arsenic is about 4.3 percent of the total arsenic in the sample. This concentration is low enough to relieve concerns related to exposure to inorganic arsenic by eating Dungeness crab.
