14 brands of water being recalled amid E. coli fears

After discovering one of its sources was contaminated with E. coli, Niagara Bottling is voluntarily recalling 14 brands of bottled spring water that were manufactured at its facilities in Pennsylvania from June 10 to June 18.

The water is sold under the brand names Acadia, Acme, Big Y, Best Yet, 7-11, Niagara, Nature's Place, Pricerite, Superchill, Morning Fresh, Shaws, Shoprite, Western Beef Blue, and Wegman's.

There have been no reports of any illness, and on Facebook, Niagara said its water is safe and has undergone extensive testing. "We have confirmed that there have been no issues or E. Coli contamination of any kind detected in our finished products or in the spring water that was delivered to our bottling facility," the company said. "Despite this, once we were informed of the potential presence of E. coli at the spring source, we immediately shut down our operations, disinfected our bottling lines, and initiated a voluntary recall in an abundance of caution and in the interests of consumer safety."
