Two bottled water products have been recalled over “above average” arsenic levels.

Batches of the Spar Water Still Sport 750ml and Londis Water Still one litre were recalled by BWG Foods due to the presence of arsenic.

Consumers are advised to not drink the water, however doing so would not cause “any immediate or on-going risk.”

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

“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 requested to remove the implicated batches from sale.

“Consumers are advised not to drink the water.”

The products affected are batch code 177.
