Description:
A 2007 study of the microbiological safety and quality of bottled water on sale in Ireland found that 7.2% of bottled water tested failed to meet European microbiological standards1 or guidelines2 (FSAI, 2008). This study raised a question as to the food safety risks posed by such water so in January 2009, the FSAI requested its Scientific Committee to provide an opinion on the risks posed by bottled waters contaminated with one or more of the following bacteria or groups of bacteria: • Escherichia coli • enterococci • coliforms • Pseudomonas aeruginosa. In addition, the Committee was requested to consider, in each case, if there was a correlation between the numbers of these bacteria detected in bottled water and any risks to public health.
