An Escherichia Coli scare has prompted a Canada-based bottled water producer to recall some of its products. Niagara Bottling LLC said the recall is purely out of an abundance of caution. There have been no signs of its product being contaminated or reports of consumers falling sick, it said.
The family-owned company said the operator of a spring that supplies two of its plants failed to report evidence of E. Coli at the source. The bottler said it halted production, disinfected bottling lines and issued a voluntary recall.
The recall affects water bottled from June 10 through 8 in two Pennsylvania plants only. Niagara has issued instructions to consumers on its website on how to properly read the date on bottle labels to determine if purchased water should be returned.
Consumers won’t find mainstream brand names on Niagara’s recall list, which includes mostly store and generic labels: Acadia, Acme, Big Y, Best Yet, 7-Eleven, Niagara, Nature’s Place, Pricerite, Superchill, Morning Fresh, Shaws, Shoprite, Western Beef Blue and Wegman’s.
