Niagara Bottling announced that they’ve discovered their spring water may have been contaminated with E. coli. Furthermore, the company believes the water was probably contaminated with human or animal waste.
Erring on the side of caution, Niagara Bottling said they decided to recall their spring water products manufactured at the Pennsylvania facilities.
Folks at FreedomPop have found that there were 14 brands affected, and all have been recalled.
Niagara also advised customers they should boil water before drinking for one minute and let cool before using.
The products in question have codes that lead with the alphabet F from the Hamburg facility or A from the Allentown facility. For example, the code that is currently recalled is displayed as A610JUN15 2000.
E. coli germs certainly serve as a bigger risk for infants, elderly adults and anyone with a compromised immune system. The company said it has not received any reports of illness or injury.
