A new alcohol-free Guinness product line is being recalled across because of potentially unsafe ‘microbiological contamination’ .
The company said Wednesday through a statement
Drinks giant Diageo, which owns the Irish brand, said Guinness 0.0 is being recalled in England, Scotland and Wales “because of a microbiological contamination”.
The contamination “may make some cans of Guinness 0.0 unsafe to consume” and the recall is being undertaken as a “precautionary measure”, the statement added.
“We are sorry that this has happened.”
Guinness 0.0 was launched last month as a low-calorie and alcohol-free alternative to the famous Irish stout.
It went on sale in British supermarkets and off licences in four packs of 440ml cans on October 26.
A recall notice on the British Guinness website said “production will only recommence when we are completely satisfied that we have eliminated the root cause of the issue”.
