BOSTON (WBZ NewsRadio) — The state is warning consumers that pregnant women and infants should stay away from a Haverhill spring water company's products after the company was found to have elevated levels of chemicals in their water supply.
Spring Hill Water says there's no reason to recall their products, which were found to have high levels of Per- and Polyfluoroalkyl Substances, or PFAs. The chemicals come from nonstick pans and other kitchen products.
Because they're abiding by federal guidelines, Spring Hill Water provide water jugs under a number of different labels—mostly store-brand—to supermarkets across New England.
Those brands include Whole Foods' 365 Spring Water, Stop and Shop's Acadia Spring Water, Cumberland Farms Spring Water, and CVS's Ice Canyon Spring Water. For a full list, visit Mass.gov.
According to Boston Magazine, CVS and Market Basket are no longer carrying the water.
Elevated levels can be harmful to mostly pregnant women or young infants if consumed in large amounts.
