We just kept running over an article from Reader’s Digest that alerts against drinking “terminated” filtered water. The bottom line is this – it’s not about the water quality, but rather the plastic can conceivably filter into the water and can potentially cause harm.

It is additionally clarified in the article, however, that the termination dates on filtered water may not mean much since “the U.S. Nourishment and Drug Administration has never settled particular confinements on the timeframe of realistic usability of filtered water”.

Our recommendation? Be cautious of how long you’ve had your bottled water open for. Always check on any information regarding its production as imprinted on the bottle.
