Niagara Bottling Company of California issued a consumer level product recall of 14 of its water bottle brands after finding that a few of its water sources have tested positive for E. coli, CNN reported on June 23.

The affected products were produced between June 10 and June 18 in two of the company’s plants in Pennsylvania. Niagara spokesperson Stan Bratskeir said the company has already terminated Far Away Spring, the supplier for the company’s Pennsylvania plants, over its failure to report the presence of E. coli in the water sources. Affected brands are: Acadia, Acme, Big Y, Best Yet, 7-Eleven, Niagara, Nature’s Place, Pricerite, Superchill, Morning Fresh, Shaws, Shoprite, Western Beef Blue and Wegman’s.

Consumers are reminded not to consume the product. They are also advised to visit a medical professional immediately for any E. coli infection signs and symptoms.
