Best Water back in the market

Friday, December 07, 2018

Following a media dispatch on the removal of Best water from the market on the 15th November 2018, the Food Safety and Quality Authority (FSQA) has confirmed that the Best Water can be sold again to the public.

This comes, after Sunshine industries, the producers of Best water undertook all necessary requirements to ensure that the water is safe for public consumption.

“Tests were done on the products that contained visible signs of contamination to find out whether it was a quality or safety issue. Results showed that the changed colour of the water was due to presence of high levels of iron coming from a rusted pipe, which caused the water to be unpalatable but does not cause harm. This has been corrected with the replacement of the pipe. Further tests done on the source for bottling have shown the water to be fit for consumption. The public is hereby informed that Best bottled water is now safe for consumption. The Authority thanks the general public and Sunshine industries for their cooperation,’ the release stated.

The Authority also urged the public to take note of the production and expiry date markings that have been added on all new bottles for trace-ability purposes.
