The Ottawa Study/Action Group (OWSAG) is disturbed by the Canadian Food and Inspection Agency's report that found that bottled water sold smelled of urine, old socks and diarrhea.
CBC reported, "Dasani, owned by Coca-Cola; Real Canadian natural spring water, owned by Loblaws, one of Canada's largest grocery-store chains; and Refreshe spring water, from the Safeway grocery chain, are just some of the brands whose water has been hit with complaints over foul smells, tastes or unusually high levels of sulphur, the reports said."
Narcity flagged that "Canadians all across the country have been complaining for years" about the smells.
