Bacardi Canada recalls 1.14 L Bombay Sapphire London Dry Gin - May 3, 2017

Edmonton... Due to the incorrect labelling of alcohol volume and potential health consequences, Bacardi Canada and the Alberta Gaming and Liquor Commission (AGLC) are advising consumers not to consume 1.14-litre bottles of Bombay Sapphire London Dry Gin – specifically with lot number L16304 W (etched near the base of the bottle).

The manufacturer reported some bottles were not properly diluted, resulting in an alcohol content of 77 per cent – not 40 per cent, as listed on the bottle.

Consumers with product bearing lot number L16304 W should not consume the product and are encouraged to return any product to a liquor retailer for a refund. Opened product should also be returned.

To date, no complaints or injuries related to the consumption of this product have been reported in Alberta.
