    A federal court permanently enjoined a Henderson, Nevada, company from preparing, processing, and distributing adulterated and misbranded bottled water.
    In a complaint filed on May 19, at the request of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the United States alleged that Inc. and Real Water Inc., along with company officers Brent A. Jones and his son, Blain K. Jones, violated the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act by distributing adulterated and misbranded bottled water. The companies formerly distributed bottled water under the brand names “Re2al Water Drinking Water” and “Re2al Alkalized Water.” While the companies marketed their products as a healthy alternative to tap water, the government alleged that the products in fact consisted of municipal tap water that the defendants processed with various chemicals in violation of current good manufacturing practices, relevant food safety standards and hazard prevention measures.

    Wednesday, June 16, 2021 1:00 AM
    Carrier Air Wing (CVW) TWO “BROADSWORD” completed the new syllabus for Air Wing Fallon at the naval air station, and this new syllabus fully incorporated two new aircraft, the F-35C Lightning II and E-2D Hawkeye, to CVW-2 to mark another major step in preparation for their upcoming deployment later this year. 
    Naval Air Station Fallon operates as the leading training ground for naval air warfare. Their slogan, “train the way you fight; fight the way you train,” represents its aim to ensure mission readiness for all carrier air wings. This large-scale training exercise focuses on specific missions the wing may be asked to accomplish underway. Air Wing Fallon is a part of the Navy’s optimized fleet response plan (OFRP) which outlines maintenance, training, deployment and sustainment operations. Completing Air Wing Fallon is a necessary phase for all carrier air wings to obtain the required qualifications to deploy.
