Scientists at a university in Ireland have found faecal bacteria in a range of health supplements.

A study of 8 samples of algae based 'super-foods' like Spirulina and green wheatgrass also found that some of the faecal bacteria was resistant to certain types of antibiotics.

The researchers from NUI Galway described the finding as a 'significant public health concern.'
