Govt Declared 20 Mineral Water Brands Harmful for Human Consumption

Twenty different brands of bottled water were deemed unfit for human consumption on Tuesday by the government.

The Pakistani government has asked the Pakistan Council for Research in Water Resources (PCRWR) to evaluate bottled and mineral water brands every quarter and to report the findings to raise public health awareness.

Twenty-two cities provided 168 samples of mineral/bottled water brands for the quarter from October to December of the year 2022.

Twenty brands were found to be dangerous for human consumption due to microbiological, chemical, or both types of contamination when test results were compared to the bottled water quality criteria of Pakistan Standards and Quality Control Authority (PSQCA).
