Real Water, Inc. issued a voluntary recall for all of its “Real Water” brand drinking water because it might be linked to non-viral hepatitis. The FDA warning said people should not sell, serve, or cook with Real Water. Distributors have been notified of the recall and instructed to remove all recalled product from all store shelves.
The company ceased production of the bottled water products as the FDA and the company continue to investigate into potential causes of the problem. The recall includes bottles of differing sizes including: 1.5 liters, 1 liter, 500 ml, and 1 gallon ready-to-drink bottles that were distributed through the United States. The recall also included 4 oz. bottles of Real Water Concentrate.
Lawsuits have been filed against the bottled water company as people in states across the country have alleged it caused liver illness and sicknesses such as non-viral hepatitis. Symptoms of hepatitis, including non-viral hepatitis are similar and can include fever, fatigue, loss of appetite, nausea vomiting, abdominal pain, joint pain, yellow eyes, and jaundice. One case even blames the product for his liver transplant. Additionally, lawyers have claimed that they can link the bottled water to illnesses in young children, at least two miscarriages, and three dead dogs.
