Popular Beer Recalled After Chemical Contamination
Beer lovers are being warned to check their beer after a popular brand of Stone & Wood was recalled following a chemical contamination.
According to the brewers, a batch of the 330ml Pacific Ale was contaminated with chemical cleaning fluid.
The products affected were for sale in Queensland and Northern NSW with a best before date of 25 February 2017.
In a statement, the company said they decided to do a voluntary partial recall so that customers could be confident in their beer.
“We've taken the precautionary measure due to an isolated incident that may have affected a small number of Pacific Ale bottles in a single batch,” they said.
“No other Stone & Wood products or batches of Pacific Ale are affected.”
Customers have been warned against drinking from the contaminated batch.
“Consumers should not drink this product as cleaning chemicals may cause illness if consumed,” the Government’s Food Standards site has warned.
“The product can be returned to the place of purchase for a full refund. Stone & Wood’s customer care team can also be contacted directly to arrange a full refund or replacement, and collection.”
