PEOPLE ARE BEING advised not to drink two types of bottled water from Spar and Londis over higher than normal levels of arsenic. 

A recall notice for SPAR Water Still Sport 750ml and 1 Litre Londis Still Water was issued yesterday by the Food Safety Authority of Ireland (FSAI). 

In a notice on its website, the FSAI has advised retailers to remove Batch 177 from shelves and consumers are advised not to drink the bottled water. 

As a “precautionary measure” the affected batches are being withdrawn but consumption of the product “does not cause any immediate or on-going risk,” it said. 

The two types of bottled still water are being withdrawn after arsenic was detected at levels above the prescribed legal limit.
