Red apples purchased from four of five Orange County supermarkets were found in independent tests to have residue of Alar, a possibly carcinogenic chemical that each of the stores claimed was not used by their apple suppliers. The tests, conducted for The Times Orange County by a private San Francisco laboratory, found the highest levels of Alar--4.59 parts per million--in a sample of McIntosh apples from Albertson's in Cypress, where signs had been prominently displayed claiming that all apples were Alar-free.
