RealiTEA: FDA recall on bottled water

If you use bottled water to brew tea - and for any other consumption - please note, Food & Drug Administration (FDA) has issued a recall. The Arkansas Department of Health announced today (5/11/11) that samples taken from Mountain Pure water show the presence of biological contamination - mold.

Readers, if you purchased Mountain Pure purified drinking water in the 16.9 fl. oz. (506 ml) size, check the four digit time code etched on all bottles: 2200 to 0400 (military time). The affected lot also includes an expiration date code that says either Best By 2-27-2013 MPWA or Best By 2-28-2013 MPWA.

Return the affected bottles to the place of purchase or dispose of the water immediately.

For more information, check out the FDA's press release on the "brewing" situation.

  1. I'm not a fan of bottled water...recalls like this just highlight that it is not necessarily safer than tap water. It is also not the most sustainable choice. My full thoughts on bottled water. I stick with tap water, filtered if it really tastes too bad to drink.
