Observer staff report
Hannaford and Shaws supermarkets are recalling some brands of bottled water after evidence of E. Coli was found at the water source.
Niagara Bottling issued a recall for spring water products produced from its Pennsylvania manufacturing facilities between June 10 and June 18.
The “best by” codes on outer-wrap shrink-film or on the bottle for the affected cases would be between Dec. 8 and 16, 2016 and the product codes begin with the letter F or A.
Brands of spring water include Acadia,
Acme, Big Y,
Best Yet, 7-11,
Nature’s Place, Pricerite, Superchill,
Morning Fresh, Shaw’s, Shoprite, Western Beef Blue and Wegmans.
Consumers are being warned to discard the water or boil it for a full minute. Customers who purchased the water at Hannaford or Shaw’s stores can return the products for a full refund.
There have been no reports of illness related to the water, according to Niagara. The company is no longer using that water source, since workers there did not notify it in a timely manner, according to Niagara’s public notice.
