In the present study, bacteriological qualityof 448 different mineral water bottle brands marketed in Riyadh was analyzed from July, 2013 to January, 2014. All the collected samples were analyzed for the presence of total coliform bacteria, Escherichia coli bacteria and Pseudomonas aeruginosa. 24(5%) of these samples were contaminated with pseudomonas spp and 4(0.8%) contaminated with E. coli. The presence of pseudomonas spp and total coliform and E. coli bacteria in drinking water suggests the possible presence of pathogenic enteric microorganisms, thus, rendering the water unsafe for drinking. The data presented here clearly raised the concerns regarding the quality of drinking mineral water and highlights the danger posed to public health.

Key words: Coliform bacteria, E. coli, P. aeruginosa, bottled water.
