Safe to drink?

April 29, 2010

KARACHI: This is with reference to your report of April 29 by Fawad Ali Shah titled ‘It’s not safe water unless it’s expensive’. There are over 150 registered brands of bottled water in Pakistan and the claims made by the findings mentioned in the report have not been substantiated. No criterion for testing has been mentioned. Also, the company that admitted to using tap water has not been named. And not a single bottling company has been asked about problems of the industry and so on.
