Alarmed microbiologist Neil Maurice Alcantara warned people to avoid buying giveaway bottles being sold in Divisoria.
According to Alcantara, the bottles are apparently Bactec bottles used in hospitals for blood testing to culture bacterial infections in the bloodstream.
He also took notice of the coils underneath which according to him, are flourescent sensors used to detect possible microbial growth in the blood.
Alcantara further emphasized the dangers these bottles bring to one's health if they bottles have already been used.
He added that these Bactec bottles should only be used for blood and fluid culture and should have been disposed of properly.
According to Alcantara, the alarming incident has already been reported to the Department of Health and the Bactec bottles’ local manufacturer.
