Gina Space from New York Daily News wrote an article today stating that fourteen different brands of water are being recalled after officials found E.Coli in one of the spring sources for Niagara Bottling. Some of the store brands included Wegmans and Shoprite. Although there weren’t any reports o illness, the company still decided to recall water produced at the Hamburg and Allentown facilities in Pennsylvania from June 10 through June 18th. The article’s author, Gina Pace, recommends boiling the water before drinking it. Now is a powerful time to understand the advantage of always having a Sawyer Water Filter in your home for emergency cases like these. The Sawyer Filter is rated to 0.1 micron absolute and will remove Sawyer MINI Filter99.999999% of all bacteria, such as salmonella, cholera and E.Coli. But there are many other uses for the filter. I have spoken to employees from various companies who even state that they keep the MINI filter at the office in order to filter the tap water. Although the MINI Filter won’t filter the taste of extreme water conditions (muddy water etc.), several noticed a huge difference in the taste of tap water they were drinking. Pace says that to determine if your water is part of the recall, you can find a code which tells you the time and date the product was produced. The only affected products have a code that starts with the letter “A” or “F” and then the next numbers indicating the day, month and year. The 14 brands that were affected are: Acadia, Acme, Big Y, Best Yet, 7-11, Niagara, Nature’s Place, PriceRite, Superchill, Morning Fresh, Shaws, ShopRite, Western Beef Blue and Wegmans.
