Fiji Water has recalled over 1.9 mil¬≠lion bot¬≠tles of its nat¬≠ur¬≠al arte¬≠sian water due to the dis¬≠cov¬≠ery of man¬≠ganese and bac¬≠te¬≠r¬≠i¬≠al contamination. 

The recall affects over 78,000 cas¬≠es sold on Ama¬≠zon, with prod¬≠ucts iden¬≠ti¬≠fied as hav¬≠ing pro¬≠ject¬≠ed rota¬≠tion dates between Novem¬≠ber 11, 2023 and Novem¬≠ber 25, 2023.

The FDA clas¬≠si¬≠fied the recall as a ‚Äúclass three‚ÄĚ sit¬≠u¬≠a¬≠tion, mean¬≠ing the con¬≠t¬≠a¬≠m¬≠i¬≠na¬≠tion is ‚Äúnot like¬≠ly to cause adverse health con¬≠se¬≠quences.‚ÄĚ How¬≠ev¬≠er, Fiji Water has stressed that con¬≠sumer safe¬≠ty is their top pri¬≠or¬≠i¬≠ty and they have tak¬≠en swift action to address the issue.

Man­ganese is an essen­tial min­er­al, but at high lev­els can poten­tial­ly cause brain dam­age. The bac­te­r­i­al con­t­a­m­i­na­tion involved three unspec­i­fied genera.

Fiji Water stat­ed that 99% of the affect­ed bot­tles have already been reclaimed, with the remain­ing prod­ucts held in ware­hous­es to be returned.

The recall under¬≠scores the impor¬≠tance of rig¬≠or¬≠ous qual¬≠i¬≠ty con¬≠trol in the bot¬≠tled water indus¬≠try. While Fiji Water main¬≠tains the con¬≠t¬≠a¬≠m¬≠i¬≠na¬≠tion posed no seri¬≠ous health risks, the inci¬≠dent high¬≠lights the need for vig¬≠i¬≠lance to ensure the safe¬≠ty and puri¬≠ty of con¬≠sum¬≠able products. 

The com¬≠pa¬≠ny has pledged to con¬≠tin¬≠ue its reg¬≠u¬≠lar test¬≠ing to uphold the high stan¬≠dards expect¬≠ed of its brand.
