Cans of non-alcoholic Guinness recalled over fears they are unsafe to drink


CANS of non-alcoholic Guinness have been recalled over fears they are unsafe to drink just a few weeks after launch.

The beer, which is called Guinness 0.0, is sold in supermarkets and off-licenses in the UK.

Guinness is recalling cans of its non-alcohol drink just a few weeks after launch

The company said it was recalling cans of the stout as a “precautionary measure”.

Guinness said in a statement: “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.

“Guinness 0.0 currently is not on sale to the general public in Ireland.”

It added that the issue doesn’t affect any other Guinness variants or brands.

The company urged anyone with cans of Guinness 0.0 not to drink it.

Instead, you should return the cans to where you bought them from for a full refund.

Alternatively, you can contact Guinness’ owner Diageo on 0345 601 4558 or c[email protected] to receive a refund voucher.

Diageo told HOAR it’s only recalling a small number of cans given it’s a new product, but it didn’t specify how many.

A four-pack of the non-alcoholic drink set you back between £3.50-£4.50.

The recall comes just a few weeks after Guinness announced the launch of the drink, which was said to have taken four years to develop.

The product was developed by an innovation team based at Guinness’s brewery in Dublin, and has the same ingredients — water, barley, hops and yeast — as its standard stout.

The difference is cold ­filtration at the end to remove alcohol.

The company had planned to sell the non-alcoholic drink in pubs from next year.

Other product recalls to watch out for include kids dressing gowns at Asda, which are being pulled over fears they could go up in flames.

Safety warnings have also been issued about eggs on sale at Aldi, Asda and Sainsbury’s due to salmonella fears.

Last month, Lidl recalled cheddar cheese over fears it contains plastic pieces.
