Still and sparkling bottled water recalled from multiple Irish stores over high arsenic levels

Anyone who has consumed the water and feels unwell is advised to contact their GP.

Still and sparkling bottled water has been recalled from multiple Irish stores due to high arsenic levels.

The bottles of water from Aldi, Dunnes Stores, Lidl, Londis, Mace, Spar, and several other supermarkets and stores have been recalled over "elevated" levels of the heavy metal.

A notice on the Food Safety Authority of Ireland (FSAI) reads:

"Arsenic was detected above the legal limit in several branded still and sparkling bottled waters.

"The implicated batches are being recalled from consumers. Point-of-sale notices will be displayed in stores supplied with the implicated batches.

"Consumers are advised not to drink the implicated batches of water. If you have consumed any of the affected batches and feel unwell, please contact your GP."

A full list of the affected bottled water, stores, and batch codes can be found here.

This comes after batches of Spar Water Still Sport 750ml and Londis Water Still one litre were recalled due to the presence of arsenic last week. 

Consumers were advised not to drink the water.
