Mineral water company Neviot is recalling some of its half liter bottles due to concerns they were contaminated with bacteria.

A statement from the Health Ministry says there’s a concern the 500 millimeter bottles may contain pseudomonas aeruginosa due to an unspecified “technical malfunction” on the assembly line.

The suspect water bottles have the barcodes 729000233102 and 7290002331018.

“The company stresses that the water source is completely clean,” the ministry statement says.
