Evian Water Rejected By China For Containing "Excessive Amounts Of Bacteria"

118 tons of Evian mineral water has been seized and impounded by Chinese Health Inspectors because it contained “excessive amounts of bacteria.” China has a different standard for bacteria than the one set by the World Health Organization and Evian does not make the cut.

Evian now joins KFC, Proctor and Gamble and Walmart on the list of foreign companies that have recently had products banned from China for health concerns. —MEGHANN MARCO
