Health Warning Issued for Water Bottled by Red Canoe Water Co.

Red Canoe bottles for a number of private labels as well including: Blue Glass & Caledon Clear Water


Halton Region is warning residents and businesses not to consume or serve bottled water produced by Red Canoe Water Co. Ltd.

The Region’s Public Health Inspectors recently found bottled water related to the Ministry of Health and Long Term Care’s province-wide advisory within Halton Region. A sample of water was taken from the bottles and found to be heavily contaminated with bacteria. As a result, there is a potential health threat posed by these products.

“Water contaminated with bacteria may cause adverse health effects such as gastrointestinal and stomach illnesses like nausea, vomiting, cramps, and diarrhea,” reported Dr. Bob Nosal, Halton Region’s Medical Officer of Health. “I strongly advise anyone using bottled water to thoroughly check the label before you drink, use or sell the water.”

 Consumers and businesses can check labels on water bottles for the following references:

•             Bottled at source by Blue Glass Water Co. Ltd., or;
•             Bottled at source by Caledon Clear Water Corp., or;
•             Red Canoe Water Co. Ltd.


The operator is known to offer customized labels to food establishments. Consumers and businesses should carefully check the label to determine the manufacturer before consuming or purchasing.

Bottles may be blue, green or clear glass with a screw top. Bottles have been observed in 750 ml and 375 ml formats.
