Natural spring water recalled from Priceline over choking hazard

A popular brand of water has been recalled from Priceline stores across the country due to a choking hazard.

The 1 litre bottles of Natural Spring Water Work Out Water have been pulled because of a packaging fault, a recall notice posted on the Food Standards Australian New Zealand website says.

“There is potential for the top to snap off when the cap is removed, creating a potential choking hazard,” the notice reads.

Question: Why would water (H2O) have a ‘best before” date, unless there is the likelihood of pollution from the packaging? Almost as silly as salt (NaCl), which has hung about in the ground and/or ocean for a few million years, having a “best before’ date. Is any inorganic chemical going to deteriorate?! If they were radioactive materials, maybe we should examine their half-lives and decide whether such warnings are necessary, but I seriously question the IQs of folks who label inorganics with use-by dates.

Quite possibly connected to the plastic it’s stored in breaking down into the water and being ingested.
