In Clinton, Arkansas? Don't drink the water! Not even the bottled stuff, because it's been recalled.

Mountain Pure Water in Little Rock, Arkansas voluntarily recalled cases of 16.9-ounce bottles of water. The Arkansas Department of Health issued a statement that a sample of the water tested positive for mold contamination. It's a Class 3 recall, meaning the contamination is unlikely to harm healthy people who might consume it, but could pose a risk to people with impaired immune systems.

The recall's a double-whammy for the town of Clinton, which received 1000 cases of the recalled water to ease a local water shortage. Heavy rains have damaged the town's water treatment plant. Residents were under a boil order for several days.
