    Niagara Bottling has recalled its bottled water products after one of its spring sources was contaminated with E. coli.


    The company urged customers to avoid drinking the water without boiling it first. The water should be boiled for one minute and then cooled.

    While it was not immediately clear how widely the products were distributed, several major supermarket chains with stores across the northeast issued releases saying they had carried the water.

    E. coli can cause diarrhea, cramps, nausea, headaches and other symptoms. Niagara says it has not received any complaints of injury or illness.

    The company says the contamination was discovered in the water supply on June 10, but the spring source did not notify it in a timely manner, so they have stopped using the source.

    The contaminated water was sold under the following brand names:

    • 7-Eleven
    • Acadia
    • Acme
    • Big Y
    • Best Yet
    • Morning Fresh
    • Niagara
    • Nature’s Place
    • Pricerite
    • Shaw’s
    • Shoprite
    • Superchill
    • Western Beef Blue
    • Wegman’s

    All spring water products produced at the company’s facilities in Hamburg and Allentown, Pennsylvania between 3 a.m. June 10 to 8 p.m. June 18 were recalled. 

    Niagara Bottling did not immediately respond to media inquiries, but several supermarkets sent out press releases addressing the recall. Bottled water products were recalled at ACME Markets in Delaware, Maryland, New Jersey and Pennsylvania; at Shaw’s grocery stores in Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island and Vermont; and at Wegmans grocery stores, which operate in Maryland, Massachusetts, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania and Virginia.
