South Florida product liability lawyer, Susan Ramsey,discusses the purity of bottled water.The Environmental Working Group urges FDA to require bottled water manufacturers to reveal contaminants.
Concerned product liability lawyer, Ramsey, explores a recent study results released by the Environmental Working Group, a nonprofit public health and environmental research group in Washington, D.C. The basic premise and findings of the study report that consumers are being deceived about what chemicals are actually in the water they drink.
Ramsey, with experienced product liability law firm of Gary Roberts and Associates, provides facts from the study:
• The study’s lab tested 10 different brands of bottled water
• It detected 38 chemicals including bacteria, caffeine, the pain reliever acetaminophen, fertilizer, solvents, plastic-making chemicals and the radioactive element strontium.
• Eight did not have contaminants high enough to warrant further testing.
• Two did, and with further testing, revealed chlorine byproducts above the California standard
• The two brands: Sam’s Choice sold by Wal-Mart and Acadia of Giant Food supermarkets.
Ramsey states many consumers do not realize that up to 45 percent of bottled water comes from municipal water supplies (not springs). South Florida product liability law firm of Gary Roberts and Associates suggests contacting a skilled product liability lawyer if you feel you have become ill due to contaminated water.
