Nestle responds that 2 million bottles of Paris water have been destroyed: heavy rainfall has polluted some water sources, and products have not entered the market

According to CCTV reports, the French General Administration of Health said on the 25th local time that 2 million bottles of bubble water from Nestle’s bubble mineral water brand “Paris Water” have been destroyed due to suspected contamination with harmful bacteria. Today, Nestle China responded to First Financial that it was due to heavy rainfall polluting a well in the area that Nestle destroyed potential Parisian seafood products, which did not enter the market.

It is reported that the destroyed Parisian aquatic products were produced between March 10th and 14th, from a water source near the capital of the Garc department in southern France, Nimes.


Nestle China responded to First Financial Services today by stating that in mid March this year, the Garc department in France experienced consecutive unusually heavy rainfall. During this period, Nestle France Water Business Company has strengthened its testing and monitoring measures under the supervision of the French government due to a production violation in 2021. It found that a well producing Perrier natural mineral water in Verg è ze had abnormal indicators, and temporarily suspended this well and destroyed all products produced during this period. The above-mentioned products did not enter the market.

In January of this year, Nestle’s Paris water and other products were exposed for illegal production. Nestle Group notified French authorities in 2021 that it has used prohibited ultraviolet and activated carbon filters to treat some mineral water to ensure food safety. According to European regulations, any disinfection of natural mineral water is prohibited during the production process. Nestle immediately responded that it had completed the relevant rectification in 2021 and added measures such as testing and monitoring under the supervision of the French government.

Recently, Nestle Group just released its first quarter report, with a revenue of 22.1 billion Swiss francs, a year-on-year increase of 1.4%, including 1.23 billion Swiss francs in the Chinese market, a year-on-year increase of 2.1%.
