The impact of Superstorm Sandy is still being felt months later. The latest effect-- a warning from Poland Springs Water Company.
Earlier this week, the New Hampshire Health Department released a warning about Poland Spring 3 and 5 gallon containers. According to the press release, some customers may have used the containers to store gasoline following the October storm in New York, New Jersey and Connecticut. After using the empty containers to store gas, they were then returned to the company. The New Hampshire DHHS is recommending that people who have purchased the water bottles "since November 1, 2012 open them and check for possible gasoline odors before using the water."
According to the Poland Spring website, at least one child had to be treated at the hospital after drinking the water. Bottled water that is not in 3-gallon or 5-gallon containers is not affected by this issue.
