Bottled water under scanner

                                                                          With demand on the rise, bottled drinking water is under the scanner. Food Safety officials in the district told The Hindu that they had collected samples of the packaged water for analysis, and results were awaited.
Water should meet the safety standards, with no trace of E. coli bacteria.
The pH value of water is another concern. The acceptable deviation from the neutral value of 7 is up to 6.5.
“The manufacturers are expected to use regulators to control the pH value,” said a Food Safety official. Meetings with the association of bottled water manufacturers were held recently to apprise them of norms and guidelines.
