Bottles of a popular gin have been recalled across Canada after a batch was found to contain nearly twice the amount of advertised alcohol.
Officials said the 1.14 litre bottles of Bombay Sapphire London Dry Gin should have had 40% alcohol content by volume when the actual figure was 77%.
They said the problem had been traced back to the production line.
The Canadian Food Inspection Agency said no illnesses associated with the gin had been reported.
Drinks giant Bacardi, which distributes Bombay Sapphire, said the affected batch was believed to have only been sold in Canada.
The province of Ontario was the first to remove the gin from stores before a nationwide recall was issued.
“One batch was bottled before correct dilution to achieve the stated 40% alcohol content by volume,” the Ontario Liquor Control Board said in a statement
“As a result, the affected batch has alcohol content by volume of 77%.”
