A food watchdog has issued a product recall notice for a North-east manufactured flavoured still water.
Food Standards Scotland (FSS) said the action was because of a strong odour and an unpleasant taste from the Macb water, which is based in Macduff.
Macb said it was withdrawing the range as a precaution following a “small number” of complaints.
The bottles affected have the best before end dates of July 18, August 18 and September 18.
FSS said: “This spoilage of the product is due to the presence of mould. The company has already taken steps to withdraw these products from sale.”
A statement by Macb, owned by Cott Beverages, said: “Please be assured that while the drink may have a strong odour and be unpleasant to taste, this is not a food safety issue.
“We take our responsibility as a quality soft drink manufacturer very seriously and apologise to anyone who has received a bad experience with any of our drinks.”
