Complimentary cans of new non-alcoholic Guinness recalled here 'due to the possible presence of mould'

The FSAI said that the implicated batches have not been sold directly to consumers in Ireland.

BATCHES OF THE new non-alcoholic version of Guinness are being recalled in Ireland due to the “possible presence of mould in the products”, the Food Safety Authority has said (FSAI).

In a statement, the FSAI said that the implicated batches have not been sold directly to consumers in Ireland.

However, a small quantity of the batches were made available on a complimentary basis.

Yesterday, Diageo said it was recalling cans of the non-alcoholic stout in Britain amid safety concerns over microbiological contamination.

Guinness 0.0 was launched last month amid much fanfare after a four year development process.

The batches affected by the FSAI recall have best before dates of 8 August 2021, 9 August 2021, 17 August 2021 and 24 August 2021.

The FSAI added that the possible presence of mould “may make the products unsafe to drink”.
