NIAGARA VOLUNTARILY RECALLS ITS SPRING WATER

IRVINE, Calif. – If you’ve got bottled water in the fridge or pantry, you might want to check if it’s included in a recent recall of several brands under the Niagara umbrella, after the company issued a voluntary recall last week for all spring water products produced from its Pennsylvania manufacturing facilities between June 10-18.

Niagara says the spring source for its water was potentially compromised and contaminated with E. coli. There haven’t been any reports of illness or injury related to the products, the company says, “and finished product testing detected no contaminants or issues of any kind.”

But because the spring source didn’t notify Niagara “in a timely manner,” the company says, it’s issuing the recall out of an overabundance of caution and will not be using the source from here on.

Here is a list of the affected brands:

  • Acadia • Best Yet • Nature’s Place • Shaws • Acme • 7-11 • Pricerite • Shoprite • Big Y • Niagara • Superchill • Western Beef Blue • Morning Fresh • Wegman’s

To check if your product is affected, Niagara tells customers to check the code on the products: The only affected products have codes that begin with the letter F (indicating its Hamburg facility, although it’s unclear why that code isn’t H) or A (for Allentown), where the products were produced. You can find a complete list of codes on the Niagara site.

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

Niagara cautions consumers not to drink the affected water without boiling it first, or use other bottled water.

John McCarthy is primarily known for his investigative reporting on the U.S. Virgin Islands. A series of reports beginning in the 1990's revealed that there was everything from coliform bacteria to Cryptosporidium in locally-bottled St. Croix drinking water, according to a then-unpublished University of the Virgin Islands sampling. Another report, following Hurricane Hugo in 1989, cited a Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) confidential overview that said that over 50 percent of the U.S. Virgin Islands public lives below the poverty line. The Virgin Islands Free Press is the only Caribbean news source to regularly incorporate the findings of U.S. Freedom of Information Act requests. John's articles have appeared in the BVI Beacon, St. Croix Avis, San Juan Star and Virgin Islands Daily News. He is the former news director of WSVI-TV Channel 8 on St. Croix.
