Guinness recalls alcohol free cans in UK over contamination concerns
The new alcohol-free cans were announced last month.
Guinness has recalled its 0.0 alcohol-free cans in the UK over possible contamination concerns.
The company made the decision to recall all cans of the new product in the UK as a precautionary measure, as some of the cans may be "unsafe" to drink.
Guinness 0.0 is not yet for sale in Ireland.
"As a precautionary measure we are recalling Guinness 0.0 in Great Britain because of a microbiological contamination which may make some cans of Guinness 0.0 unsafe to consume," said Guinness in a statement.
"Guinness 0.0 currently is not on sale to the general public in Ireland. The issue is isolated to Guinness 0.0 and does not impact any other Guinness variants or brands."
Guinness 0.0 was due to launch in Ireland this month. The new drink claims to boast the same “beautifully smooth taste, perfectly balanced flavour, and unique dark colour of Guinness, without the alcohol."
Taste tests by an independent panel found that Guinness 0.0 “exceeded expectations” and its taste was dubbed as “outstanding."
