(WWLP) – A Massachusetts water company is closing after its bottled water was found to be tainted by potentially toxic chemicals.

High levels of PFAS chemicals were found in water bottled by the Haverhill-based company, Spring Hill Farm Dairy.

These man-made chemicals are used in non-stick and waterproof coatings and have been linked to cancer and other health problems.

The water is sold under various in-store brand names at Stop & Shop, Whole Foods and elsewhere.
