- Some cans of Guinness 0.0 may have unsafe “microbiological contamination”.
- The company has recalled all cans and told customers not to drink them
- After four years of development, Guinness launched an alcohol-free version in October
Guinness has urged anyone with cans of its non-alcoholic stout in the UK not to drink it due to concerns of unsafe microbiological contamination in some cans.
The brewer this morning announced the "precautionary" recall of its recently launched non-alcoholic stout. Thousands of cans are said to have been purchased in the weeks since its introduction.
Guinness said in a statement: “As a precautionary measure, we are recalling Guinness 0.0 in the UK due to microbiological contamination that may result in some cans of Guinness 0.0 being unsafe to consume.
The Irish brewer says Guinness 0.0 could be unsafe to drink as some of the cans may have "microbiological contamination".
& # 39; Guinness 0.0 is not currently sold to the general public in Ireland.
"The problem is limited to Guinness 0.0 and has no impact on other Guinness varieties or brands."
Guinness launched the alcohol-free version of its famous stout on October 22nd after four years of trying to reproduce the taste of the original black material.
The Irish brewer said Guinness 0.0 was a response to growing consumer appetites for non-alcoholic, low-calorie beverages.
