Peñafiel bottled water is being pulled from large shelves after a report found that the products contained arsenic at levels that exceeded federal standards.
Keurig Dr Pepper Inc., the company that makes this brand of bottled water, said Peñafiel unflavored mineral spring water products are involved in the market withdrawal. It wrote in a statement Friday that it is voluntarily pulling the products, which are sold at Target and Walmart, and possibly other vendors.
The move comes after a report from the non-profit center for environmental health found bottles of water water.
California's consumer protection law, Proposition 65, classifies arsenic as a metal that can cause cancer and reproductive harm.
The company also has anyone who has bottled water at home to return the products to the store for a full refund. No other products made by Keurig Dr Pepper are involved. "Arsenic is found in nature, including in aquifers that are the source of mineral water and where levels can vary over time," the company statement continued. "Fine Dr Pepper has recently installed enhanced filtration systems at its facilities that produce Peñafiel, and the product now being produced is well within regulatory guidelines." A Consumer Reports investigation in April found 11 out of 130 brands of bottled water had detectable levels of arsenic
Federal standards set at acceptable limit of 10 parts per billion. Consumer Reports maintains that standard should be lower than three parts per billion.
The group identified six brands that had three levels per liter or higher, including Peñafiel, as well as Starkey water, owned by Whole Foods Market.  "Beyond the required annual testing at an FDA certified lab, we have an accredited third-party lab test every production run of water before it is sold, and our test results from the same lot analyzed by Consumer Reports show that these products are fully compliant with FDA standards for heavy metals, "wrote Whole Foods Market spokesperson in an email to NBC News. "We would never sell products that do not meet FDA requirements."
