Pa. bottling company recalls bottled water due to possible E. coli contamination
HARRISBURG, Pa. (WPVI) --Authorities say water bottled by a Pennsylvania bottling company may be contaminated with E. coli.
The Pennsylvania departments of Agriculture, Environmental Protection, and Health issued the warning, saying spring water bottled by Niagara between June 10 and June 18 at its facilities in Hamburg, Berks County or Upper Macungie, Lehigh County should not be consumed.
According to the state authorities, Niagara purchased spring water from Far Away Springs-Auburn in Schuylkill County, and multiple water quality sample results from Far Away Springs taken during routine testing have indicated the presence of E. coli in the water.
Niagra issued a statement on their website, saying:
"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 products were sold under the following brand names:
Western Beef Blue
