#Hashtag: BottledWaterRecall


Niagra recalled bottled water after one of their manufacturing plants was found to have evidence of E. Coli, according to the Denver Post article entitled, “Niagra recalls bottled spring water on E. Coli concern” Also according to the article, the evidence of the E.Coli was discovered on June 10. Niagra put a statement on its website saying they were not informed by the spring operator that there was evidence of E. Coli.

The brands currently under recall, according to the Niagara Water website are Acadia, Acme, Big Y, Best Yet, 7-11, Niagara, Nature’s Place, Pricerite, Super Chill, Morning Fresh, Shaws, Shoprite, Western Beef Blue and Wegman’s.

The company advises not to drink water labeled under the recalled brands without boiling it first. Some consumers find this to be an unnecessary hassle due to the basic idea behind bottled water.

Others who already disapprove of bottled water are encouraging its decline due to the recent recall.

Despite the warning, the company stated on their website that “there have been no issues or E. coli contamination of any kind detected in our finished products or in the spring water that was delivered to our bottling facility.”

Because of this statement and the cautious voluntary recall, some appreciate the company’s ferverous effort to keep unsafe water off the market.

However, that doesn’t stop the worries and social media hysteria regarding the issue.
