By Donna Westfall – June 13, 2017 – The state of New York has proposed legislation that would require annual labeling of bottled water. For those individuals allergic to fluoride, they would have the opportunity to reject purchasing a product that could make them sick.
Prohibits the sale or offer for sale at retail of bottled water for human consumption, food preparation or culinary purposes in this state in a beverage container unless such container includes on its label certain information; requires an annual bottled water report to be prepared by the purveyors of bottled water. One of the items this label will include is:
A statement indicating whether the water contains fluoride. If the water contains fluoride such statement shall indicate the average amount present in a bottle.
