The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has issued a warning against drinking alkaline water bottles produced by the Real Water brand.
The warning comes after the agency received reports of five separate cases of non-viral hepatitis, which resulted in liver failure in young children from four different households in Nevada.
The FDA reports the only common link between the five cases is that they all had consumed Real Water alkaline water.
Every child has since made a full recovery but the FDA is now advising everyone, including restaurants and retailers, to not consume, cook with, sell or serve the water brand until more information is known about the cause of the illnesses.
In an interview with NBC News 3, the company says they are working with the FDA and taking "proactive steps to stop selling and distributing real water products throughout the United States until the issue is resolved."
