Mar 5, 2017-

Canadian aut- horities on Friday recal-led hundreds of bottles of Georgia Bay Vodka after inspectors found that the alcohol level was a whopping 81 percent, twice the amount stated on the label. The batch of 654 bottles were produced “before correct dilution to achieve the stated 40 percent alcohol content by volume,” the Canadian Food Inspect-ion Agency said. “As a result, the affected batch has alcohol content by volume of 81 percent.” The statement added that there have been “no rep- orted illnesses” linked to drinking the tainted vod-ka. The Liquor Control Board Of Ontario warn-ed that the vodka “is not safe for consumption”. “Consuming a product with an alcohol content of 80 percent could cause serious illness.”
