Health Division of the Honiara City Council has quickly condemned media reports which claimed most bottled water products sold by shops are not safe for human consumption.
Earlier this week various reports pointed out that most of the bottled water products sold in the country are not safe for consumption, that their pH level is not at a safe level.
SIBC News collaborated in a water test investigation revealing the results of microbiological analysis of five bottled water products in the country.
Defending the bottled water products, Chief Health Inspector of Honiara City Council, George Titiulu said, the report were inaccurate.
“HCC we do monitoring for all these bottled water brands, according to our records the mineral waters are safe for consumption,” he said.
“The information we have is verified from our national health laboratory.”
SIBC news could not confirm if Mr. Titiulu’s records are up to date.
More on this story will come up in our evening current affairs.
