Eden, an Israeli mineral water supplier, said on Wednesday it had suspended bottling because of contamination at its Golan Heights spring.

Bottling was halted after tests showed bacteria levels exceeded limits set by state regulators.

The company said it was carrying out tests in coordination with the Ministry of Health and assured consumers that water already on sale was fit to drink.

In February 2009, pollution forced Eden and a rival company, Neviot, to halt and recall bottled water from stores.

Eden said later the incident had caused the company losses of between NIS 22 million and NIS 125 million.
