CP warned to recall bottled water over 'illegal logo'

The Thai Industrial Standards Institute (TISI) has seized around 3,000 bottles of CP Freshmarket drinking water from four stores, after the brand was found to be using the TISI logo without permission.

 

TISI secretary-general Wanchai Panomchai asked CPF Trading to remove the bottled water from shelves in other CP Freshmart branches, and to recall all the bottles nationwide.

 

The institute also checked the Holland Star Packaging plant in Ayutthaya, where bottled water under the CP and CP Freshmart brands is produced. It said the inspection found that the TISI logo had been used without permission on around 400,000 bottles of the two brands produced at the plant.

 

Wanchai warned that that this infringement was against the law, with violators facing a fine of up to Bt1 million or up to one year in jail. He added that operators of stores that sold the products were also breaking the law, and could be punished with fines of up to Bt500,000 or six months in jail.

Quarreling about a logo. Why still bottled water? How long will it take for these companies to start building waste water plants and drinking water systems to get drinking.water from the taps at home.

Most of Bangkok's water is treated and safe - leaving the plants. However, there is a slight problem with the delivery of the water. Beside deteriorated pipes, every hillbilly laborer will tap into the system using whatever method the dream up on the spot. 

Cleaning out my mother-in-law's roof mounted water tank, we've come across all sorts of debris, including a number of cellophane wrappers.

Stop putting plastic labels on the bottles, recyclers won't take them, they go in the garbage.

A lot of gratuitous advertising for CPtm in this article's image, but I don't see the disputed-use "TiSi" logo.

For a country that can't even control it's general waste at either public or government level let alone the possibility of 'safe' water from the govt won't happen in your lifetime.

 

In England it was lead pipes then it often became over chlorination due to faulty regulators especially in certain areas.

 

I buy my drinking water locally from someone I know who runs a water plant, supply my own 5 litre bottles and cost 1 baht litre.   Empties collected refills ( in my bottles ) delivered.    I drink 3 litre per day and have never had a problem.

 

I am fortunate not to live in a city and have to haul bottles of water back to a condo or house.  However ... the local pipes here often break especially at the start of the rainy season, water can be sandy and brownish, its chlorine or other chemicals ( ? ) can make the water feel strange to the skin ( doesn't soap up or can't wash soap off ), even had nematodes in the water.

 

I often wonder why, for a country that is surrounded by water, it can't start desalinating water even if it has to eventually be delivered in old piping to houses etc.
