CHICAGO (WLS) -- A lawsuit filed Thursday claims many budget bottles of wine contain high levels of arsenic.

The brands named in the lawsuit include Franzia, Menage a Trois, Sutter Home, Wine Cube, Charles Shaw, Glen Ellen, Cupcake, Beringer and Vendage.

Arsenic is a carcinogen that can cause problems with the heart, lungs and nervous system.

The Wine Institute says all wines on the market are safe.
