Our standards meet or exceed the government's.
Bottled water is one of the most extensively regulated packaged food products available. From the source to the finished product, government oversight provides consumers with multiple layers of safety assurance.
Nestlé Waters upholds a lead standard for water sources that surpasses FDA regulations.
Nestle: 0,5 ppb. FDA's Regulations: 5 ppb. Public Water Supplies: 15 ppb.
We’re obsessed with safety.
We test our spring water at the source, throughout the bottling process, and then conduct hourly tests on finished products. We screen for over 200 contaminants annually, more than the FDA requires.
The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) mandate that bottled water must meet the same, and in many cases, stricter standards than tap water.
Our spring water sources also meet or exceed all individual state, as well as Canadian regulatory requirements.
Bottled Water Regulation
Bottled water is stringently regulated for contaminant levels and testing requirements. By law, bottled water must meet higher standards on lead than tap. We adhere to federal and state quality standards as well as our own to ensure that our bottled water is safe. Our water is carefully monitored from source to bottle.
Nestlé Waters welcomes outside part inspection of all bottling facilities, including those shown below, to ensure that the company meets the most stringent guidelines for sanitation and process control.
