Water Warning - Bottled Zam Zam Water - 03/10/2006
 
The Food Standards Agency is advising consumers not to drink bottled water on sale that is labelled as Zam Zam water, as it may contain high levels of arsenic.
The Food Standards Agency is advising consumers not to drink bottled water on sale that is labelled as Zam Zam water, as it may contain high levels of arsenic.

Genuine Zam Zam water, which is sacred to Muslims, comes from a specific source in Saudi Arabia and cannot legally be exported from that country for commercial sale. Therefore, any product found in the shops would have an uncertain origin and could pose a safety risk.

This advice does not relate to the genuine Zam Zam water being brought into UK by returning pilgrims as an accompanied ‘personal import’.
