On Monday, April 18th, it was found that over two thousand Spanish civilians had been treated or hospitalized for stomach bugs. Authorities claim that the source of these contaminants was bottled drinking water, namely from the company Grupo Eden Springs. The bottled drinking water was the type used in offices. The company later recalled over six thousand water bottles and publicly apologized for the trouble. Symptoms of the stomach bug include nausea, diarrhea, and fever.
