A water bottling company is issuing a voluntary recall due to a possible E Coli contamination and urging people to boil their bottled water first or avoid drinking it altogether. Here are the brands involved.
According to ABC News, Niagara Bottling Company has that one of its spring sources has a "positive indication" of E. coli, which the company said indicates that the water may be contaminated with human or animal wastes. There have not been any reports of illness or injury to date. However, as a precaution Niagara Bottling Company decided to conduct a voluntary recall.
The company has discontinued the use from the contaminated source.
The Niagara Bottling Company is recalling all its spring water products produced at its facilities in Hamburg and Allentown, Pennsylvania, from June 10, 3 a.m., to June 18, 8 p.m., 2015.
The 14 brands involved in the voluntary recall are: Acadia, Acme, Big Y, Best Yet, 7-11, Niagara, Nature’s Place, Pricerite, Superchill, Morning Fresh, Shaw's, Shoprite, Western Beef Blue and Wegman’s.
Niagara advised customers to boil the affected water for one minute and let it cool before using.
The only affected products have codes that begin with the letter F (for Hamburg) or A (for Allentown). The first digit after the letter indicates the number of the production line. The next two numbers indicate the day, then the month in letters, the year, and then the time, based on a 24-hour clock.
