Statement in Relation to Current Bottled Water Recall
Friday, 25 October 2019
The FSAI states that a recall of a range of Celtic Pure bottled waters is being undertaken, due to some water products testing positive for the presence of a number of bacteria, namely Pseudomonas aeruginosa, E. coli or Enterococci. Pseudomonas aeruginosa rarely causes illness in healthy individuals, however it poses a higher risk of complications if consumed by severely immunocompromised people such as those who have undergone transplants or chemotherapy. The presence of E. coli or Enterococci in water is considered an indicator that the water has been contaminated with faecal material however this does not mean it will make people sick. Consumers are advised not to drink the bottled water products implicated in this recall.
