Batches of water recalled from number of Irish stores over contamination fears
E. Coli has been detected in a number of Celtic Pure water bottles.
A number of batches of Celtic Pure bottled water have been recalled after bacteria including E. coli was detected.
Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Enterococci or E. coli bacteria were detected in a range of batches of water bottled by Celtic Pure, and the Food Safety Authority of Ireland (FSAI) have urged people not to drink any of the affected bottles.
Many of the water bottles included in the recall are sold in shops and supermarkets like Aldi, Dunnes Stores and Londis.
The FSAI have said that retailers are requested to remove the implicated batches from sale.
Retailers have now also been advised to display a point-of-sale recall notice in stores where the implicated batches were sold.
They have also said that Pseudomonas aeruginosa poses a higher risk of complications if consumed by severely immunocompromised people such as those who have undergone transplants or chemotherapy.
It rarely causes illness in healthy individuals.
The following tables show the implicated brands and batches that are included in the recall:
