When you see someone in Missouri with a water bottle, this is one of the more common brands you'll see. That's why it's important to check your water bottle supply now as Missouri is now suddenly included in an ever-expanding urgent recall due to contamination.

The bulletin shared by Food Safety News explains that a water bottle recall from a popular brand now includes Missouri. They say that the very popular Fiji water bottles have had lots with high levels of manganese and 3 other bacteria that the CDC says can cause nervous systems and even brain damage with extreme levels.

This is the bottle to look for. Specifically, it's the 500 ml bottles that are sometimes sold in a 24-pack.


Here are the exact labels that are under recall that were available in Missouri and other states:

Fiji Natural Artesian Water 500 mL (24 pack) Case

  • UPC Code: 6 32565 00004 3
  • Bottle UPC Code: 6 32565 00001 2
  • Product Quantity: 78,533 cases
  • Code Information: Nov. 11, 2023, Nov. 12, 2023, Nov. 13, 2023, Nov. 24, 2023, Nov. 25, 2023

The original recall began in March, but it's now believed these lots were sold in Missouri also which is why the bulletin has been extended.

If you have these specific bottles, do not drink them. Instead, return them to the point of purchase or throw them away. The warning from the CDC about the side effects of large amounts of manganese is severe. You can follow the full bulletin from Food Safety News for more details and updates on this urgent recall.
