The recall of several batches of bottled water due to increased levels of arsenic detected therein was a precautionary measure, Celtic Pure has said, and that the matter has been fully resolved following a Food Safety Authority warning.

The level of arsenic – a naturally occurring element within spring water that can be harmful to humans in high doses – was above regulatory levels due to a mechanical failure on a filtration device at one of its plants, the Monaghan-based spring water company has said. The breach first came to light last week when BWG issued an internal recall, which was widened when the Food Safety Authority issued a public notice about water brands shipped to Lidl, Aldi, Dunnes Stores and Applegreen, among others. Celtic Pure is the supplier of some own-brand water products sold in these chains.

A full list of the brands and retailers affected by the recall can be found at fsai.ie.
