Niagara Bottling LLC has recalled all spring water products produced at its two Pennsylvania facilities between June 10-18, 2015, after being informed that the water source was potentially compromised by E. coli bacteria.
Certainly a great deal of bottled water is filtered tap water, but I don't think they can refer to it like this if it's tap water, from the OP story:

Do those companies use the same tap water?
"Spring source" would be so misleading as to be illegal if they were referring to tap water which could hardly be called a "spring source".
Niagara stated that the bacteria were found on June 10, noting, “As the spring source did not notify us in a timely manner, we have discontinued the use of this source.”

Thanks for the heads up.
Some of those brand names are just terrible.
'Best Yet' sounds like it was collected from a gutter, I would expect an 'Acme' water bottle to explode in my face, 'Superchill' sounds like something from a bad sitcom that didn't want to get sued for using a real product, I don't know what 'Western Beef Blue' is, but I'm pretty sure it's not something I want to be drinking, and 'Morning Fresh' sounds like a feminine hygeine product.
