are there any bottled water companies that have found bacteria in their bottled water?

    Last month, the American Society of Microbiology found heterotrophic bacteria occurring in 100 times the FDA/EPA recommended amounts in 70% of Canadian bottled water samples. Though the bacteria are not linked to any specific adverse health effects in humans, researchers organizing the study confirm that any bacteria in concentrated amounts affects one’s internal microbiology, creating extra risk factors for those who may already have compromised immune systems (e.g. pregnant women, infants, the elderly).

    The Nestle corporation has also had problems controlling the heterotrophic bacteria in its water supplies, and had a feed with the EPA a couple of years ago regarding the company’s alleged irresponsible maintenance of its water-bottling plants.
