BOTTLES of water from SPAR and Londis chains have been recalled in Ireland due to concerns over their safety.
The Food Safety Administration of Ireland (FSAI) are urging the public to avoid certain bottles of water after a high level of arsenic - above the legal prescribed legal level - was detected in them.
Officials have admitted though that the recall is merely a precaution and that consumption doesn’t cause any immediate risk.
In a statement, the FSAI said: “As a precautionary measure, BWG Foods is withdrawing a batch of SPAR Water Still Sport - 750ml and Londis Water Still - 1 litre due to the presence of arsenic above normal levels.
“Consumption of the product does not cause any immediate or on-going risk.”
Retailers are being advised to remove the affected batch from sale.
