Don’t drink that water bottle: 14 brands of bottled water were recalled for E. Coli

Niagra Bottling LLC has issued a statement showing that 14 brands of bottled water were recalled for E. Coli contamination concerns. The recall was issued when the company found that one of their spring water sources tested positive for E. coli bacteria.

E. coli are bacteria whose presence indicates that the water may be contaminated with human or animal wastes,” a Niagara Bottling LLC representative said in a statement. “Microbes in these wastes can cause diarrhea, cramps, nausea, headaches, or other symptoms. They may pose a special health risk for infants, young children, some of the elderly and people with severely compromised immune systems.”

The recall affects spring water products manufactured from Niagra Bottling’s Hamburg and Allentown, Pennsylvania facilities. There are no reported illnesses related to the recall. The bottling company has discontinued its relationship with source Far Away Spring in Auburn. They will continue their manufacturing at the the Hamburg and Allentown locations with different sources.

The products that relate to the recall are any spring water produced from June 10-18th, 2015 at any of Niagra’s Pennsylvania facilities.

The brands affected are the following: Acadia, Acme, Big Y, Best Yet, 7-Eleven, Niagara, Nature’s Place, Pricerite, Superchill, Morning Fresh, Shaws, ShopRite, Western Beef Blue and Wegmans.

The potentially affected products have codes that begin with the letter F (for Hamburg) or A (for Allentown). The digit after the letter represents the bottle’s number in production, and the rest of the numbers are the date it was manufactured.

Niagra requests to contact them online or at (888) 943-4894 for any questions or concerns.
