Escherichia Coli: 14 Brands of Water Bottles Recalled Over Potential E. Coli Contamination

Escherichia Coli

Niagara Bottling has issued the recall for water bottled in its Pennsylvania facilities in Allentown and Hamburg. The brands include food store brands like Shoprite, Acme, Wegmans and Giant.

Niagara Bottling is recalling its bottled water products after one of its spring sources was contaminated with E. coli.

The company is urging customers to avoid drinking the water without boiling it first. The water should be boiled for one minute and then cooled. While it was not immediately clear how widely the products were distributed, several major supermarket chains with stores across the northeast issued releases saying they had carried the water.

The company says the contamination was discovered in the water supply on June 10, but the spring source did not notify it in a timely manner, so they have stopped using the source.

Here is a list of the types of water:

Big Y
Best Yet
Morning Fresh
Nature’s Place
Western Beef Blue

All spring water products produced at the company’s facilities in Hamburg and Allentown, Pennsylvania between 3 a.m. June 10 to 8 p.m. June 18 were recalled.
