This article is quite something...with water quickly becoming one of the world's most scarce resources, MNCs are bothering to unnecessarily put expiration dates on bottled water -- urging unsold products to be thrown away!! Drinking water does not expire, and can be consumed many years after it has been bottled. But in the wake of "survival" kits becoming increasingly popular (helped, of course, by high security alerts issued by the US government), companies are taking advantage of an increased demand for bottled water. Which, of course, makes sense -- but that they should try to encourage further sales by suggesting that water "expires" (and thus that it is rendered garbage after a certain time) means that perfectly good drinking water will be thrown away if unsold.
