Gin drinkers, beware! The AGLC is now recalling Bombay Sapphire brand London Dry Gin due to high alcohol content.
This comes after the Liquor Control Board of Ontario (LCBO) made the same recall earlier this week.
How high? Almost double.
According to the Canadian Food Inspection Agency, the recall was initiated after the discovery that, during production, one batch was bottled before correct dilution to achieve the stated 40% alcohol content by volume. The affected batch has alcohol content by volume of 77%.
Consumers are warned not to consume the recalled product described.
Anyone with the product is asked to return it to where it was purchased for a full refund. AGLC is asking all liquor licensees to pull the 1.14 L size bottle with this lot number off their shelves.
To date, no complaints or injuries related to the consumption of this specific product have been reported in Alberta.
In March, a similar recall was made for Georgian Bay Vodka due to double alcohol content as well.
