PITTSBURGH - A voluntary recall has been issued for water bottled at a Pennsylvania manufacturing facility due to concerns with E. coli.

“Out of 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 Bottling said in a posted consumer notice.

According to the company, they were 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,” Niagara said.

The products were sold under the following brand names:

 

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

 

DO NOT DRINK THE AFFECTED WATER WITHOUT BOILING IT FIRST OR USE OTHER BOTTLED WATER. 

Bring all affected water to a boil, let it boil for one minute, and let it cool before using, or use bottled water. Boiling kills bacteria and other organisms in the water.

To determine if your product is affected, reference the following information on the code, which can be found on the bottle.The code will indicate the place, date and time that the product was produced.

The only affected products have codes that begin with the letter F (for Hamburg) or A (for Allentown). 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.
