Bottled Water Consumer Protections Less Stringent than for Tap Water

“The FFDCA does not specifically authorize FDA to require bottlers to report test results, even if violations of the standard of quality regulations are found.”

“….FDA deferred action on DEHP [a chemical used in the manufacture of polyvinyl chloride plastics] in a final rule published in 1996 and has yet to either adopt a standard or publish a reason for not doing so.”

The Government Accounting Office has issued a report “Bottled Water: FDA Safety and Consumer Protections Are Often Less Stringent Than Comparable EPA Protections for Tap Water”
(GAO-09-610) on June 22, 2009. Read a summary or the full report.
