(WXYZ) — Beer and wine may contain a chemical found in weed killer, according to a new report by the U.S. Public Interest Group.

The report studied five different wines and 15 beers and reportedly found trace amounts of a pesticide in all but one of the drinks.

The study included brands like Budweiser, Miller Lite, Sutter Home and Sam Adams.

Researchers say the levels of the chemical found are not necessarily dangerous, but it's concerning given the potential health risks.
