Last Friday, Pepsi recognized that one of its products, Aquafina is not pure water from springs but merely tap water. The company is now changing the Aquafina brand label as a consequence of mistakes in labeling for the Aquafina.
During this time, many people assume that they are better to consume bottled water instead of tap water deemed to have been contaminated with drugs and fluoride. In fact, in many cases, bottled water is no better than tap water.
An advocacy group, Corporate Accountability International, has examined several brands of bottled water and found that some of them had issued false claims. Aquafina is one of them. Dasani, bottled water brand owned by Coca-Cola is one brand that is suspected of having committed a false claim, but Coca-Cola has denied that Dasani is ordinary tap water.
Niagra Bottling, one of the main suppliers of bottled water, has reported that one of its springs has been contaminated by E-Coli and the company has reminded some water companies that had been customers of Niagra Bottling. It seems that we should be more careful to ensure that the water we drink every day is absolutely safe.
