LCBO Recalling Select Bottles with Extremely High Alcohol Content


There is too much of a good thing.

The LCBO recently announced that it's recalling Bombay Sapphire brand London Dry Gin from the marketplace due to extremely high alcohol content.

This recall was initiated after the discovery that, during production, one batch was bottled before correct dilution to achieve the stated 40 per cent alcohol content by volume.

As a result, the affected batch has alcohol content by volume of 77 per cent.


The Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) is advising anyone who might have this product at home to dispose of it or return it to the store.

So far, there have been no reported illnesses associated with the extremely potent libation.

The affected products are sold in 1.14 litre bottles and contain the code L16304 W. The UPC code is 6 20212 19020 8.
