Tesco Supermarkets sell Bottled Water which Comes From The Tap
The Daily Mail reported that bottles of Tesco Everyday Value Still Water and Asda Smartprice Still Water were sitting on shelves alongside big brands of mineral water such as Evian and Perrier.
But it claimed they were simply a filtered version of what is supplied to almost all domestic homes and that there was no labelling on the bottles saying so.
It was likened to the fictional situation in the sitcom Only Fools And Horses where protagonists Del Boy and Rodney Trotter start selling “Peckham Spring”, which is in fact water from the taps of their London council flat.
Both supermarkets denied misleading their customers in any way, saying the bottles gave customers a clear idea of what they were buying.
Tesco profits have been well down this year as the campaign to boycott them for supporting middle east terror, particularly in Palestine and selling foods stolen from the occupied territories
“Tesco sells a wide range of waters to suit all tastes and budgets. All of our products are clearly labelled so customers know what they are buying.”
Jeanette Longfield of campaigning ethical food group Sustain told The Daily Mail: “I hope people return to trustworthy tap water – saving money, saving energy and saving waste in the process.”
