FDA update “Real Water” alkaline water and the lack of cooperation by the company

The FDA has found that recalled "Real Water," which is linked to a hepatitis outbreak, is being offered for sale online. The agency is working to locate any remaining products to ensure they are no longer available to consumers. The FDA will continue to monitor this situation closely and follow up with retailers as we become aware of recalled products being offered for sale. The FDA is conducting an audit to measure the effectiveness of the voluntary recall initiated by Real Water, Inc. As of March 31, 2021, the audit found that many distributors had not received notification directly before contact by the FDA.  Additionally, as of March 31, 2021, Real Water Inc. is still promoting the product via social media despite issuing a recall announcement. Given a lack of cooperation by the firm, FDA investigators have been unable to complete investigations at the "Real Water" Inc. facilities in Henderson, NV, and Mesa, AZ. The FDA is urging the public not to drink the water and to report any entity selling it. The FDA is also recommending that the water not be given to pets. "Five children were hospitalized in late 2020 in Clark County, but all of them have recovered," according to the Southern Nevada Health District investigation report.  @ https://www.fda.gov/food/outbreaks-foodborne-illness/investigation-acute-non-viral-hepatitis-illnesses-real-water-brand-alkaline-water-march-2021?utm_medium=email&utm_source=govdelivery
