Bottled water voluntarily recalled due to E. coli
RICHMOND, VA - Niagara Bottling is voluntarily recalling bottled water sold under several brand names after discovering one of its spring sources was contaminated with E. coli.
On the company's website, this notice was posted:
Out of an abundance of caution and in the interests of maintaining the highest possible standards for product quality, Niagara® is issuing a voluntary recall for all Spring Water products produced from its Pennsylvania manufacturing facilities during the June 10th – June 18th time frame.
Niagara was notified that the source was potentially compromised. There have been no reports of any illness or injury related to the above mentioned products to date and finished product testing detected no contaminants or issues of any kind. This voluntary withdrawal is being implemented in cooperation with State and Federal Agencies.
The brands affected are:
- Best Yet
- Nature's Place
- Big Y
- Western Beef Blue
- Morning Fresh
Niagara says they "have not received any complaints of injury or illness of any kind" and have stopped using the source because it "did not notify us in a timely manner."
Bacteria were found in the water supply on June 10.
To determine if your product is affected, look at the code on the bottle - bottles recalled start with the letter A (Allentown) or F (Hamburg), and were manufactured between June 10 to June 18.
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.
Example: A610JUN15 2000
