Fourteen brands of water are being recalled after officials found E. Coli in one of the spring sources for Niagara Bottling, including some store brands such as Wegmans and ShopRite.

There have been no reports of illness, but the company is recalling water produced at the Hamburg and Allentown facilities in Pennsylvania from June 10 through 18.  To determine if your water is part of the recall, customers can find a code which tells them 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.

Customers shouldn’t drink the water without boiling it first.  E. Coli is caused by the water being contaminated by human or animal waste, and can cause symptoms including diarrhea, cramps and nausea.

The 14 brands are:  Acadia, Acme, Big Y, Best Yet, 7-11, Niagara, Nature’s Place, PriceRite, Superchill, Morning Fresh, Shaws, ShopRite, Western Beef Blue and Wegmans.
