Tyler Mountain Bottled Water Recalled for E. coli

Tyler Mountain bottled water is being recalled for E.coli contamination, according to the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection. Customers who purchased 3 gallon, 4 gallon or 5 gallon jugs  bottled on April 17, 2014, and April 18, 2014 should not use them.

Customers who recently received a delivery are the only ones affected by the recall and can contact Aqua Filter Fresh, which produces the water, at 1-800-864-8957 for further instructions. Aqua Filter Fresh is in the process of replacing all recalled jugs of water.

Water that contains E. coli bacteria has been contaminated with human or animal waste. If ingested, E.coli can cause serious illness. Symptoms of an E.coli infection include diarrhea that can be bloody, abdominal cramps, nausea, headaches and other symptoms. Infants, young children, seniors pregnant women and others with compromised immune systems are at heightened risk.

Health officials urge anyone who drank the water and has symptoms to see a doctor. Be sure to mention your possible exposure to E.coli when you do as antibiotics can worsen the condition of someone with an E.coli infection.
