FDA Says Do Not Drink 'Real Water' Brand Alkaline Water

FRIDAY, April 30, 2021 -- As an investigation into a hepatitis outbreak in Nevada associated with Real Water brand alkaline water continues, no one should drink, cook, serve, or sell the water, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration said Wednesday.

As of April 26, there had been 11 probable cases and one suspected case of acute nonviral hepatitis in Nevada.

Despite a recall on Real Water brand alkaline water sold nationwide, the FDA said it is still being sold online and is trying to locate any remaining products to ensure they are no longer available to consumers.

The FDA said it has inspected Real Water Inc. facilities in Nevada and Arizona, is reviewing information provided by the company, is analyzing Real Water products, and will provide ongoing updates about the investigation.

People who develop symptoms of nonviral hepatitis (fever, fatigue, loss of appetite, nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain, dark urine, clay or gray-colored bowel movements, joint pain, and jaundice) should contact their doctor, the agency advised. The FDA added that this water should not be served to pets.
