FLINT, MI (WNEM) -

Sam Cox is the owner operator of a McDonalds on the corner of Clio Road and Pasadena Ave. in Flint.

"We weren't going take a potential chance with our customers," Cox said. "We immediately decided that we were going to go to the stores, get liters of pop that we sell at our self-serve fountain and we was going to supply them until the water ban had been lifted."

Cox said he was forced into action after receiving a text alert from the TV5 app that the city issued a water boil advisory.

It convinced him to stop selling Power Aide, Fruitopia and Hi-C Orange, drinks that all use Flint water.

Cox said those drinks are off limits until the boil advisory is lifted by city officials.

"We received text messages saying that the water main has happen and you've lost water pressure in your residence or business or your place of business there is a potential chance that there is bacteria in the water," Cox said.

Customers said they are thankful for management's fast thinking but are still alarmed by the need for adjustments.
