Brand name: Real Water
Product recalled: Water and Water Concentrate
Reason of the recall: Product may be linked to instances of non-viral hepatitis
FDA Recall date: March 24, 2021
Recall details: Real Water, Inc. of Mesa, AZ and Henderson, NV, has issued a volunt... See Moreary recall of all sizes of its Real Water brand drinking water, because it may be linked to certain instances of non-viral hepatitis which were reported in or about November, 2020 in the Las Vegas, NV area. Symptoms of all types of hepatitis, including non-viral hepatitis, are similar and can include 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.

Recalled products include 1.5 liters, 1 liter, 500 ml and 1 gallon ready-to-drink bottles that were distributed throughout the United States by UNFI and KEHE to the natural channel of stores, as well as through direct distribution to various retail stores on a regional basis in the greater Las Vegas, NV area, Northern Arizona, Southern California, Tennessee, Georgia, Chicago, New York, Mississippi, and New Mexico. Real Water is also sold on Amazon.com.

My husband and I vomited violently within 2 hrs. This was followed by severe abdominal pain and non stop diarrhea. My husband's symptoms subsided within 2 days. Vomiting, abdominal pain and non stop diarrhea continued for me. I went to the hospital on 3/23/23. Was diagnosed with food poisoning that caused severe dehydration where I received 8 liters of iv in 2 1/2 days. I now have a swollen colon, colitis, inflammation all over and have to take multiple meds to help control my symptoms.
Stomach pains, non stop diarrhea. I passed out from exhaustion & did not have a opportunity to throw out my husbands grilled cheese. He responsed the same way. Fun flying home on an 8 hr flight like that.
The hospital sent me home to finish recovering. I am on multiple medications. Unable to eat anything other than 1/3 cup of bland food. I received 8 liters of iv that has retained in my right leg and hard to walk. I will be filing a law suit.
