The leading Brewer, Guinness is recalling cans of its non-alcoholic stout because of contamination fears, just two weeks after they were launched.

The brewer described the recall as “precautionary” but said “microbiological contamination” might mean some products were unsafe.

The company urged anyone with cans of Guinness 0.0 not to drink them.

“We wanted to let you know that as a precautionary measure we are recalling Guinness 0.0 in Great Britain because of a microbiological contamination which may make some cans of Guinness 0.0 unsafe to consume.”
“If you have bought Guinness 0.0 do not consume it. Instead, please return the product to your point of purchase for a full refund. Alternatively, contact the Diageo Consumer Careline on [email protected] or 0345 601 4558 with details of your purchase to receive a refund voucher before disposing of the product.”
“We are sorry that this has happened.”

The recall only affects customers in Great Britain, as the product was not yet on sale in Ireland or Northern Ireland. No other Guinness drinks have been recalled.

Guinness 0.0 was launched to much fanfare in supermarkets on 26 October, having taken the brewer four years to perfect.

The new stout was created in response to what Guinness said was growing consumer demand for lower-calorie and non-alcoholic drinks.

At the time of launch, Guinness bosses insisted that none of the traditional flavours had been lost, with the seal of approval being given by independent taste testers.

The new product was due to become available on draught in pubs next spring, before being launched in other parts of the world later in 2021.
