People are being advised not to drink two types of bottled water from the Spar and Londis retail chains.

The bottled water is being recalled over higher than normal levels of arsenic.  

A recall notice for the SPAR Water Still Sport 750ml and the 1 Litre Londis Still Water was issued today by the Food Safety Authority of Ireland.

In the notice posted on the FSAI website, it says the recall is a "precautionary measure" and that consumption "does not cause any immediate or ongoing risk".

Retailers are asked to remove the batch number 177 from sale, while the FSAI say consumers are advised not to drink the water.
