Health warning over water coolers

Dirty water coolers may be putting people's health at risk, a consumer watchdog has warned.

Consumer Focus Scotland said 23 out of 87 samples from dispensers in Edinburgh and the Lothian and Borders region showed bacterial contamination.

Coolers in leisure centres, offices, care homes and schools were among those to fail the tests.

The watchdog says some failed because of bacterial contamination and it wants the safety rules tightened up. read more as posted on BBC website Consumer Focus Scotland , March 09
