The Saskatchewan Liquor and Gaming Authority (SLGA) is issuing a public recall of Bombay Sapphire London Dry Gin in the 1.14L size.
The recall is being issued because the actual alcohol content in the product does not match the alcohol declared on the label. SLGA has advised the province’s approximately 700 liquor retailers to remove the product from store shelves immediately.
Bacardi Canada, the product distributor, advised that the affected lot L16304w has alcohol content by volume of 77 per cent rather than the stated content of 40 per cent.
Therefore, the product is not safe for consumption. Consuming a product with an alcohol content of 77 per cent could cause serious illness. The product lot code can be found on the bottom of the back side of the distinct blue glass bottle.
Anyone with the affected product (L16304w) can return it to any liquor retailer for a full refund.
