Nature Of Danger:

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.

Enterococci and E. coli – 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. 

Action Required:

Manufacturers, wholesalers, distributors, caterers & retailers:

Retailers are requested to remove the implicated batches from sale. Retailers are also advised to display a point-of-sale recall notice in stores where the implicated batches were sold.

Consumers:

Consumers are advised not to drink the implicated bottled waters.
