Bottled water recalled after mold found in shipment

LITTLE ROCK, AR - FDA has issued a recall for bottled water in Arkansas that has a nationwide distribution as Mountain Pure Water. 

The company announced a voluntary recall of lots marked with a four-digit code. The time code is written in military time, and the affected time period is from 2200 through 0400. 

The code is etched into the plastic bottles of water. The affected product also includes an expiration date code that says Best By 2-27-2013 MPWA or Best By 2-28-2013 MPWA. 

These are bottles of purified drinking water in the 16.9 fl. oz. (506ml.) size. Alabama Department of Health is recommending that anyone who might have purchased or received any of this bottled water dispose of it or return it to the point of purchase or distribution.

The recall was issued after mold was found in samples of the water.

The tainted Mountain Pure water was found in a shipment of bottled water ordered by the city of Clinton for use during disaster relief efforts. Residents of flood-affected communities should boil water for one minute before drinking, or drink other types of purified bottled water.
