Perrier reopens bottling operation

PARIS - Perrier resumed bottling mineral water Monday and said exports to the United States and Canada would resume more rapidly than planned - in the next week or two. A company spokesman said that the benzene contamination forcing the recall of 72-million bottles in North America probably was due to human error and that all tests for contamination "at the end of the production line have been negative." Officials think only 13 bottles were contaminated with benzene, a clear poison used as a solvent for fats and in making lacquers, varnishes and dyes.
