Complainant Name:
Natural Hydration Council

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Daily Mail


Kinvara Carey of the Natural Hydration Council complained to the Press Complaints Commission that the newspaper had breached Clause 1 (Accuracy) of the Editors' Code of Practice. The complainant was concerned that the newspaper had wrongly reported that people in Britain could be suffering migraines caused by a chemical present in plastic water bottles and had illustrated the article with an image of a woman drinking bottled water. In fact, water bottles sold in the UK do not contain the chemical in question, Bisphenol A.


The complaint was resolved when the newspaper removed the disputed photograph from the online article and amended the text of the piece appropriately.
