4 Mineral Water Brands Declared Unsafe for Consumption: PCRWR
In its latest report for April-June 2019, Pakistan Council of Research in Water Resources (PCRWR) has declared 4 brands of bottled mineral water as unsafe for human consumption.
According to the reports, a total of 77 brands were sampled out of which 4 were declared chemically unsafe. Out of these 4, Super Natural and Taj Pure Drinking Water were found to have too much sodium. On the other hand, Classic Plus and KLINZ were found to have a lower pH than the standard limit.
Reports further claim that the excessive sodium in 2 of the brand’s water can cause hypertension whereas a low pH can cause acidity.
The 77 botted samples were taken from Islamabad, Rawalpindi, Lahore, Tando Jam, Multan, Faisalabad, Bahawalpur, Sialkot, and Peshawar. PCRWR has been designated the task of quality monitoring from the ministry since 2005.
