Analysis by National Institute of Public Health: Bacteria found in Aquila bottles not mutated E. coli bacterium

According to an analysis published by the National Institute of Public Health on Tuesday, coliform bacteria that were found in bottled water by the company Aquila are not pathogenic. The kind of E. coli bacteria found in the samples is not the mutated variant that has lead to dozens of deaths in Germany, an employee of the institute said. He added that nonetheless, such bacteria should not be found in bottled water and that the pulling of 33,000 bottles of Aquila from the market will remain in place.
