Consumers have a big thirst for bottled water, but is it really a safer option than tap water? More than 8 billion gallons of it were consumed in the United States in 2009 alone. 

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) regulates bottled water products, working to ensure that they’re safe to drink. FDA protects consumers of bottled water through the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (FD&C Act), which makes manufacturers responsible for producing safe, wholesome, and truthfully labeled food products.

There are regulations that focus specifically on bottled water, including:

•    “Standard of Identity” regulations that define different types of bottled water
•    “Standard of Quality” regulations that set maximum levels of contaminants—including chemical, physical, microbial, and radiological contaminants—allowed in bottled water
•    “Current good manufacturing practice” (CGMP) regulations that require bottled water to be safe and produced under sanitary conditions (BlackDoctor.org) –
