The FDA is recalling Life-Line water that may be contaminated with Pseudomonas aeruginosa, a potentially deadly bacteria.
Yesterday the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) announced a global recall of all lots of Life-Line Water, a water additive. Why? Well, it turns out the water may be “contaminated with Pseudomonas aeruginosa, a potentially deadly bacteria.” According to the FDA, using the potentially contaminated water may result in the need for “medical or surgical intervention to preclude or reverse permanent damage to a body structure or function.”
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) chimed in and said “Pseudomonas aeruginosa infections often occur due to external uses of contaminated water.” Once infected, individuals may develop ear infections, eye infections, and skin rashes, especially if they spent time in “inadequately chlorinated hot tubs or swimming pools.”
If you think you may be experiencing symptoms or other problems after using the recalled water, contact your healthcare provider. Fortunately, there have been no reports of illness or adverse reactions associated with the recall. If you or anyone you know have questions about the recalled water, contact McDaniel Life-Line by phone 806-647-1741 or email via firstname.lastname@example.org.
