Check your bottles of FIJI water, New Jersey. What you've got might be contaminated.


Apparently, I've been drinking from a bottle of FIJI water that may or may not be contaminated with microplastics. Pray for me.

FIJI Recalls Bottles of Its Water Over Contamination Concerns

The bottle and case of my family purchased from Amazon (part of a monthly subscription) is involved in a nationwide recall by FIJI.

What to Do with Your Recalled FIJI Water Bottles


My mother received an email from Amazon Tuesday morning with the subject line, 'An important message regarding your order'.

The digital correspondence goes on to state the following:

Dear Amazon Customer,

We have learned of a potential safety issue regarding certain product(s) that our records indicate you purchased through the website.

For more details on what you should do, please contact FIJI Water at 1.866.406.4149.

If you made this purchase for someone else, please notify the recipient immediately and provide them with the information.

We regret any inconvenience this may cause you but trust you will understand that the safety and satisfaction of our customers is our highest priority.


Certain bottles of the natural artesian water have shown up on social media threads, like Reddit, where a brownish residue can be seen settled at the bottom.
