Some consumers said the sparkling water tasted funny. The company took it to heart.

Talking Rain recalled 21 lots of Sparkling Ice Cherry Limeade after customers "reported an off-taste and off-odor," according to the company's recall announcement.

Only "a small number of customers" complained, the announcement says. Also, the company stressed that the recall is purely precautionary and covers only the Cherry Limeade manufactured at one plant.

Still, Talking Rain didn't elaborate on what the problem might be that caused a recall of 21 lots of a drink.
