If you’ve just picked up a bottle of NESTLÉ PURE LIFE water, read the production date stamped on the bottle first.

In a cautionary move on Saturday, the water company pulled off the shelves all its 0.33 ml water bottles that were produced on July 27, 2018, according to the Petra news agency.

The action was taken after the Jordanian Ministry of Health alerted the company that some of the bottled water produced on that date did not meet the required standards and specifications set by them, and warned that it could be unsafe to consume.

NESTLÉ PURE LIFE said in a statement on Saturday evening that it was committed to ensuring the health and safety of its consumers in Jordan, as well as providing them with high-quality products.

The company also informed its customers that it was working with the Jordanian authorities to investigate the mishap further, while assuring them that its other products on the market are safe to consume.

NESTLÉ PURE LIFE is the world’s largest bottled water brand. The company was born in Pakistan in 1998 before it expanded to Europe in 2000 and the US in 2002. Today, it delivers drinking water to more than 40 countries, across five continents.
