FSAI has been notified that a sample of Beechvale Natural Still Water was found to contain E. coli (1 cfu/250 ml). Although E. coli may be non-pathogenic, it is an indicator of faecal contamination and renders the water unsafe and in breach of microbiological criteria for bottled water.
Beechvale Waters, Northern Ireland, is recalling the implicated batch of Beechvale Natural Still Water and is issuing a point-of-sale notice to their customers. Corrective action is being taken by the bottler.
