Bottled water sold in Dublin supermarkets recalled after bacteria including E coli detected in range of batches



Batches of bottled water sold in Dublin supermarkets are being recalled after harmful bacteria, including E.coli, were detected.

A range of batches of water, bottled by Celtic Pure, were found to have Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Enterococci or E. coli bacteria.

Many are sold in popular shops and supermarkets like Aldi, Dunnes Stores and Londis.

The implicated batches are "unsafe or potentially unsafe and are subject to recall", the Food Safety Authority of Ireland said.

Pseudomonas aeruginosa poses a risk to people who have severely compromised their immune system, such as those who have undergone transplants or chemotherapy. It rarely causes illness in healthy people, the FSAI said.

For enterococci and E. coli, the FSAI warns that "their presence in water is considered an indicator that the water has been contaminated with faecal material, however, this does not mean that it will make people sick".

The FSAI added: "Retailers are requested to remove the implied batches from sale. Retailers are also advised to display a point-of-sale recall notice in stores where the implied batches were sold.

"Consumers are advised not to drink the implicated bottled waters."

At the start of August, bottled still and sparkling water were recalled from many of Ireland's major shops and supermarkets due to high arsenic levels.

The recall was part of an investigation into Celtic Pure.
