Life-Line Water Recall Issued Over Bacterial Contamination Risks

All lots of the drinking water additive “Life-Line” have been recalled, after routine testing detected bacteria contamination that may result in serious and potentially life-threatening life threatening infections.

The Life-Line Water recall was announced on March 5, after an analysis found the additive may contain Pseudomonas aeruginosa, which could lead to infections requiring medical or surgical intervention.

Life-Line Water products are placed in normal drinking water, containing protoplasm that is intended to balance the body’s metabolism. However, bacterial contamination could result in serious health risks.

Pseudomonas aeruginosa is a common bacterium that can cause disease in plants, animals and humans, and is found in many different environments, including soils, water and plant or animal tissue. The bacteria may result in infections that cause mild to severe health consequences among humans, including fever, chills, body aches, light-headedness, rapid pulse, heavy breathing, nausea and vomiting, diarrhea and decreased urination

For most individuals the infection can be treated with common antibiotics, however for those with weakened immune system, especially patients diagnosed with cystic fibrosis, the infection can cause lung infections due to its ability to thrive in moist environments.

The FDA and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) warn that patients in hospitals settings are typically at the highest risk of becoming infected.

The recall includes all lots of Life-Line Water products sold in 1-gallon bottles. The products were manufactured by McDaniel Life-Line LLC of Dimmitt, Texas. They were shipped across the United States and Canada to individuals via internet purchase on the company’s website.

Customers with recalled products are being asked to stop consuming them immediately, discard any remaining product, and contact their healthcare provider if they have experienced any adverse health consequences that may be related to drinking the product.

Customers with additional questions or concerns regarding the recall should contact McDaniel Life-Line at 806-647-1741 or email them directly at lifeline@amaonline.com.
