Reports of exploding cans of beer have sparked the recall of a range of Indian pale ale (IPA) from drinks firm Brew York on a precautionary basis.

The threat of explosion in its ‘Juice Forsyth’ beers was a result of over carbonation in the drinks, according to the brewer. As such, the affected cans posed a threat of injury to consumers.

Brew York has recalled 440ml cans of Juice Forsyth with the batch code Gyle 1036 and the best before date 23 July 2024.

Safe disposal

Consumers who may have bought the affected products were advised to safely dispose of the cans by opening them underwater while wearing appropriate hand and eye protection.

Once the drink is disposed of, consumers can send an image of the can to Brew York – with the batch code and best-before date clearly visible – to receive a coupon for use on its website to cover the cost of the can.

A point-of-sale notice will be displayed in all retail stores that are selling this product. This notice explains to customers why the product is being recalled and tells them what to do if they have bought the product.

Potential to explode

Potentially explosive bottles of booze were also behind a recall last year as well. Jeremy Clarkson owned Hawkstone Cider recalled the titular drink after it was discovered over-fermentation in the bottle had caused some of them to explode.

The Grand Tour ​presented comically took to social media to demonstrate the proper way to ‘diffuse’ the drinks in a similar manner to what was described by Brew York.

Meanwhile, last month, Crosta & Mollica has recalled a range of pasta sauces over fears that it may contain pieces of glass.

The Italian food manufacturer pulled jars of its ‘Crosta & Mollica Sugo Alla Norma Aubergine, Ricotta and Tomato’ from sale because the possible presence of glass makes them potentially unsafe to eat.
