Warning from FDA and CDC of Acute Non-viral Hepatitis Illnesses due to “Real Water” Brand Alkaline Water

The FDA, CDC, and state and local partners investigate reports on acute non-viral hepatitis in Nevada traced to “Real Water.” Real Water Inc. is headquartered in Mesa, Arizona. The company did not initiate a recall. However, health officials are warning the public not to drink the water. The health district in Las Vegas received initial reports of the five cases of acute non-viral hepatitis in November 2020. The patients include three adults and three children. The water was distributed in four states in 5-gallon bottles via home delivery subscriptions and nationwide in smaller containers via online sales. The 5-gallon containers are delivered to homes in the following areas: Honolulu, HI through Aloha Water, Orange County, CA through Paradise Bottling Company, St. George, UT through Real Water Southern Utah, Tucson, AZ through Aqua-Pure, and Ventura and Santa Barbara, CA through Real Water Gold Coast. Additionally, according to the firm’s website, Real Water is sold in 1 gallon, 500 mL (16.9oz.), 1 liter, and 1.5-liter plastic bottles and a 750 ml glass bottle. Acute non-viral hepatitis is an inflammation of the liver that can be caused by exposure to toxins.  @ 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
