PORTLAND, Maine (AP) - Shaw’s and Hannaford stores are recalling house brands of bottled water after E. coli bacteria was found in the water’s supply.

The Portland Press Herald (https://bit.ly/1GxvC1E ) reports Shaw’s brand of bottled water and Hannaford’s Nature’s Place water are both bottled by Niagara Bottling Co. in Pennsylvania. The bacteria was detected at one of the springs from which the company obtains water. The company says no E. coli was detected in the spring water delivered to its plants or the finished products.

The bacteria causes cramping, nausea, diarrhea and vomiting. The stores advise customers to not drink the water and return it to the store for a refund. Niagara Water asks consumers to check the notice on the company’s website to determine if they bought a recalled bottle.
