Bottled water recalled for mold contamination

Many people turn to bottle water as a convenient way to get, what in their minds is, "clean, pure, water" at a reasonable price. They often only take into account the price of a bottle or case of water at a time and don't ever consider the long term costs. In reality, purchasing bottled water can be 2-3 times the price of a gallon of gasoline; inconvenient to carry and store; and may not be fresh because it can be bottled up to 2 years before purchase.

What's even worse is that we don't really know how pure our "pure spring water" in a bottle really is. Do you know how safe your bottled water is? A recent finding in Arkansas resulting in the recall of a batch of Montain Pure bottled drinking water for mold contamination! Read along for the details on this finding...

The Arkansas Department of Health (ADH) announced Monday that test results on a sample taken from certain lots of Mountain Pure bottled drinking water contained biological contamination. The company voluntarily recalled a batch of its mold-tainted bottled water. of lots marked with a four-digit time code.

The recalled Mountain Pure water bottles are etched with legends bearing a date by which they should be consumed. The Health Department said the batch involved in the recall is labeled "Best By 2-27-2013 MPWA" or "Best By 2-28-2013 MPWA."

The Health Department said the contamination showed up in testing of some bottles shipped to Clinton after that city's water system failed last week.

Dr. William L. Mason, the agency's branch chief for preparedness and emergency response, said it was unlikely that a healthy person would get sick from drinking the water, but people with a weakened immune system might be at higher risk.
