Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has warned people who drink bottled water after several people reported liver damage.
The FDA is warning consumers not to drink Real Water’s alkaline water. According to reports from officers, FDA received five cases of acute non-viral hepatitis (resulting in acute liver failure) in infants and young children in November 2020 in the Southern Nevada Health District.
FDA said, "All five patients had been hospitalized but have since recovered. All of them have consumed 'Real Water' brand alkaline water."
The patients came from different houses and more people from the same house reported less severe symptoms, including fever, vomiting, nausea, loss of appetite, and fatigue.
The FDA reported that the consumption of "Real Water" brand alkaline water is the only thing that was common in all those cases. The symptoms seen in patients are fever, fatigue, loss of appetite, nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain, dark urine, clay or gray-colored bowel movements, joint pain, yellow eyes, and jaundice.
"Those experiencing these symptoms should contact their doctor."
