Real Water’s bottled product, which has been linked to liver failure and non-viral hepatitis by the federal government, is still up for sale online and being pushed through social media despite the company’s voluntary recall, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) warns.
“The FDA has become aware that ‘Real Water’ brand alkaline water is still being offered for sale through online retailers,” the FDA wrote in an update on March 31. “The agency is working to locate any remaining products to ensure they are no longer available to consumers.”
The FDA noted it was running an audit “to gauge the effectiveness” of the company-initiated recall. Real Water says that while the “potential problem rose in Las Vegas, we’re taking proactive steps to stop selling and distributing Real Water products throughout the United States until the issue is resolved.”
