According to the FDA, Keurig Dr Pepper has recalled all Peñafiel Unflavored Mineral Spring Water products imported from Mexico due to the presence of violative levels of Arsenic. Arsenic when present in the diet at very high levels, well above those detected in recent samples of Peñafiel, is associated with numerous chronic diseases. Water quality tests of Peñafiel samples conducted by an independent laboratory on behalf of Keurig Dr Pepper detected Arsenic at levels that exceeded the FDA’s bottled water standards for mineral water of 10 parts per billion. You should neither serve nor consume the recalled Water products identified above.

According to the World Health Organization, long-term exposure to Arsenic from drinking water and food can cause Cancer and Skin Lesions. It has also been associated with Cardiovascular Disease and Diabetes. In utero and early childhood exposure has been linked to negative impacts on Cognitive Development and increased Deaths in young adults.
