Those looking to stock up on their beer supply in advance of the upcoming long weekend are being advised of a recall that was issued today, regarding a BC beer making company.
In a release, the BC Liquor Distribution Branch (LDB) and Northam Beverages, the manufacturer of BC beer brand Bowen Island, said they are voluntarily recalling two types of product due to concerns about can defects.
The affected products are:
- Bowen Island – Artisan IPA, Lot numbers L18207, L18187, L18215
- Bowen Island – West Coast Lager, Lot number L18207
According to an official statement, “the rims on some cans are not seamed properly, and may have sharp metal sticking out from the rim.”
The affected products are sold in six-packs and the lot number is printed on the bottom of each can.
The LDB is instructing all private retailers, hospitality customers and BC Liquor Stores to pull the product from shelves.
Customers who have purchased any of the affected products are advised to return them to the store where they were purchased to receive a full refund.
