Survey of radiological substances in bottled drinking water

 FSA

The FSA has published a survey of the levels of radioactive substances currently found in bottled water.
No risk to health was identified. Some naturally-occurring radioactivity was detected in the 28 samples of UK bottled drinking water, but not at levels that would cause harm to health. There is nothing to suggest that consumers should change their dietary habits as a result of this survey.

The survey was prompted by a new European Commission directive setting out limits of radioactive substances in different sources of drinking water. These limits will be added to UK law by November 2015.None of the samples analysed breached any of the proposed legal limits.

The findings of the survey will be used as a comparison with results that will be collected from next year onwards by the bottled water industry. The survey results are presented in the Food Survey Information Sheet which can be found at the link below.
