The Agency is advising people not to drink certain batches of Hadham Naturally Pure English Spring Water. Hadham Water Ltd has recalled its two litre bottles of still and carbonated water
because of possible bacterial contamination. The Agency is concerned that this could lead to sickness and diarrhoea.
The Health Protection Agency (HPA) is not currently aware of any cases of illness that have resulted from drinking this water.
The affected batches have best before dates between June 11 and June 28 2008 and have been distributed across England.
This water is also sold through Sainsbury’s stores as part of its Basics range. Sainsbury’s has recalled Sainsbury’s Basics table water two litre bottles (still and carbonated) best before
between 11 June 2008 and 28 June 2008 as of 2 July.
People who have already bought any of the potentially affected products should not consume them and should return them to the place of purchase.
Investigations are being carried out by Hadham Water Ltd, the relevant local authority (East Herts District Council), working with the FSA and HPA.
