Warning: Bottled Water Recall

Chances are your tap water tastes like old socks… but without the pleasant texture.

Which is why (again, chances are) you drink bottled water now and then. Or every day.

Or multiple times per day.

If so, you’re not alone.

According to the Beverage Marketing Corp., in 2014 we gulped down 11 BILLION gallons.

That’s a metric crap-load of water.

Some environmentalists take the view that we’re causing dangerous droughts because of our consumption. I’ve always gotten a chuckle out of Ann Coulter’s remark that “liberals are worried we’re going to run out of something that literally falls from the sky.”

But as that stupid song says, just because you have a bunch of water… doesn’t mean there’s a drop to drink.

Just this week, that’s been proven true again.

Several brands of Niagara bottled water (did anyone else think that was Nigeria when they first read it?) have been recalled because the water source “was potentially compromised and contaminated with E. Coli.”

Super. And just in case you think you’re safe because you don’t recognize the name, it turns out a bunch of sub-brands are also at risk. Take a gander:

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

As this helpful Consumerist article points out, you can also check on the bottle code to see if it’s from the recalled batch: Look for a code beginning with F or A.

Of course, you can avoid all this and save a boatload of money by drinking tap water. Oh, wait, it’s nasty. But there’s a solution to that as well. Get yourself a Turapur. Hook it up to your sink and you’ve got water superior to all bottled brands. It tastes delightful and acts as a powerful antioxidant in your body.

You might notice a boost of energy and younger-looking skin.
