Consumer Alert: Bombay Sapphire Gin Recalled for Containing Twice the Advertised Alcohol

| Recall

If you're in Canada you may want to opt for a rum and coke instead of a G and T tonight. 

Multiple provinces are recalling bottles of Bombay Sapphire London Dry Gin due to the fact that they reportedly have an alcohol content of 77 percent, nearly double the 40 percent printed on the bottle.

The recall notice explains that the batch in question was "bottled before correct dilution" so it contained far more alcohol than intended. 

Those who have purchased Bombay Sapphire in Canada recently should check their liquor cabinets. The recall affects the 1.14 litre bottles with a product code of L16304. 

"We do not recommend consumption of this product," the product's distributor, Bacardi Canada told CBC. While there have been no reported illnesses connected to the product, they urge customers to return it to the place of purchase.
