FDA has oversight of the safety of bottled water sold in the U.S. This includes Good Manufacturing Practices (GMPs) specifically designed for bottled water and covering processing, bottling, holding and transporting under sanitary conditions. This ensures bottled water is free from bacteria, chemicals, and other contaminants.
FDA monitors and inspects bottled water products and processing plants under its food safety program ensuring the plant’s product water and operational water supply are obtained from an approved source; inspects washing and sanitizing procedures; inspects bottling operations; and determines whether the companies analyze their source water and product water for contaminants.
