Summary

Now, the Massachusetts Department of Public Health is warning about the presence of another chemical, per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS), in bottled water sold at Whole Foods and CVS locations in the state. Bastiaan Slabbers/NurPhoto/Getty Images On July 2, the Massachusetts Department of Public Health released an advisory about bottled water sourced from Spring Hill Farm Dairy, a local distributor that bills its water as "so pure you can see the difference." The department warned that "certain bottled water products" from Spring Hill contained levels of PFAS that might be a health risk to pregnant or breastfeeding women and bottle-fed infants. "Although there is no state requirement for us to reduce [PFAS] levels, we are doing so voluntarily and at our own CVS said in a statement that it has halted shipments of Ice Canyon Spring Water and switched to suppliers "who have not identified any PFAS issues." The company said it is committed to ensuring that its products are safe and will offer a full refund to customers.
