Few realize that Pepsi Co. owns Aquafina water, but what Pepsi just revealed may be the biggest scam in the history of consumer products.
Pepsi recently admitted that Aquafina bottled water is not spring water. It is actually not even purified. It is tap water. Typical, FREE tap water. As a result the company is being forced to change the labeling of the product to just tap water.
The label on Aquafina water bottles will soon be changed to spell out that the drink comes from the same source as tap water, the brand’s owner PepsiCo said.

As people have become more informed regarding what’s in the water they drink, they have begun drinking bottled water to avoid the fluoride and pharmaceuticals that are in normal tap water. We are now learning that bottled water does not take care of this problem since the companies are simply bottling tap water.
PepsiCo representative Michelle Naughton said in a statement,
“If this helps clarify the fact that the water originates from public sources, then it’s a reasonable thing to do.”
“We don’t believe that consumers are confused about the source of Dasani water. The label clearly states that it is purified water,” Coca-Cola spokeswoman Diana Garza Ciarlante said.
More companies are sure to come out and admit truths of what they are putting in their water, but in the mean time be sure to tell all your friends and family so that they can avoid this.
