Tainted H2O

Can someone tell me why, when I have a case of .5L bottles of Poland Spring water in my trunk and the temp drops below freezing, only some of the bottles freeze solid while the water in others stays completely or almost completely in its liquid state? I'd like to think that Poland Spring purposely puts a harmless chemical in a certain proportion of bottles because, knowing I may want to tap into my trunk water supply if thirsty on a cold day, they seek to ensure they always provide me, the consumer, with exactly what I want. I'm thinking, however, that a more likely explanation is that some of the bottles contain tainted water.

I'd go with tainted water myself. Is it bottled in China?!
