ALL ISLAND PURIFIED BOTTLED WATER MUST BE REMOVED FROM SHELVES

Health Department Issues Advisory on Island Purified Water

 

 

 

 

St.Kitts-Nevis’ leading manufacturer and distributor of Purified Water has been closed down by the Department of Environmental Health.

In an advisory issued the St. Kitts and Nevis Bureau of Standards in its latest round of testing of bottled water in St. Kitts and Nevis found that samples taken from Island Purified Water failed the necessary testing.

As a result, the Department of Environmental Health has initiated a programme to remove from consumption all bottled water produced by Island Purified Water within the last two weeks. This is being done out of an abundance of caution while further testing and corrective measures are being undertaken.

Consumers should not drink any water that was distributed from Island Purified Water within the last two weeks as it may result in diarrheal illness. The St. Kitts and Nevis Bureau of Standards, in collaboration with the Department of Consumer Affairs and the Ministry of Health, is actively addressing this matter and will keep the public duly informed.

  1. Please tell the public if there has been any case of illness after consumption of the water.

  2. Show the proof to the public in writing of what was found in seal writing by the FDA and cases!
    Lots of Food Hanglers need to be check too, all kind and all sort selling food and drink beverages some not even licenses to sell and have others working with them without a Health Card! It’s time SKN enforce stronger professionalism and pay attention of these side Bars, Vendors and Restuarabnts higher end or not, get the Health Delartment out to these ppl in full force…I hope the management of Island Purified Water get their lawyers on board and team to look into this matter for them and get it fix and not be discourage but fix the problem if it’s so true in what this article is saying! Just and hope this won’t ruin your establishment for life for lives are involved! #concern

  3. Iam sorry to hear about the removal of the water from the shelves, but at the same time, very much impressed by the vigilaance òf the Dpt. Of Consumer Affiars, and all who involved in the exercise.
