Zero water supposedly removes fluoride?

Zero water claims that although their filter is not certified to remove fluoride, the water is not likely to contain fluoride. Here is a quote from their faqs: "Q. Does the ZeroWater filter remove Fluoride?
A. ZeroWater filters are not certified for the reduction of fluoride however fluoride is an inorganic compound. The TDS meter is designed to detect inorganic compounds. Fluoride levels in water are usually around 2 to 4 ppm, which will show up on the meter as 002 to 004. So when filtered water reads 000 it is not likely that fluoride is present in water." What do you think of this statement?
