Water Cooler Warning

At issue are three- and five-gallon containers used in water coolers by several bottlers, including big-name companies.

(Poland Spring Commercial) “Poland Spring 100% Natural Spring Water.  Born better.”

Some of those containers were used to transport and store gasoline after Superstorm Sandy and have made it back into circulation, prompting health advisories in Massachusetts and New Hampshire.  A Massachusetts child was hospitalized earlier this month after drinking contaminated water from a Poland Spring container.

The company says they have a multi-step inspection process to identify and discard any bottle that could even possibly be contaminated.  Residents in both states advised to sniff test their water cooler containers.
