Check your bottles — several major chains say they carried the contaminated water

An E. coli contamination has caused Niagara Bottling to recall its bottled water.

The contamination took place at one of its spring sources. Though the contamination was discovered on June 10, the source failed to notify Niagara Bottling in a timely manner, so the company is recalling all of the water bottled at its Hamburg and Allentown, Pennsylvania, locations between June 10 and June 18. No illnesses have yet been reported.

The water was sold under several brand names, including those of major chains like 7-Eleven, Shaw's and Wegmans. The affected bottling plants are in Pennsylvania, and so far the recall seems to have affected stores primarily in the Northeast (Delaware, Maryland, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, Vermont, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania and Virginia). You can download a full list of the recalled products and see Niagara's customer notice here.

Luckily, if you did purchase any of the contaminated water, it doesn't have to go to waste. The water can be boiled for one full minute, cooled and then consumed safely. However, if you already ingested any of the recalled product and are experiencing symptoms of E.coli, such as nausea, cramping, headaches or diarrhea, see a physician as soon as possible.
