The health services said on Friday that a batch of water contained in plastic dispensers had been recalled following a series of complaints from consumers.
After conducting tests on the water in question; Blue Diamond, it was found to contain the bacteria Pseudomonas aeruginosa,a common bacterium that can cause inflammation and sepsis.
The ministry has recalled the water because it does not comply with the microbiological criteria for bottled water set up by legislation, it said.
People are being asked to avoid drinking the water and return it to the place of purchase. As a precautionary measure the ministry is asking those in who have other batches of this water to hold off consumption until cleared.
The premises and the remaining batches of the bottle water are being investigated.
The infected batch comes in 15-litre plastic containers with production and expiry dates of 08/26/2014 and 26/11/2014 respectively.
