Alcohol recalled over possible chemical contamination

A large range of alcohol has been recalled in Australia over fears of potential chemical contamination.

A recall notice posted by G J Wholesale on the Food Standards Australia website says the affected alcohol has been pulled from shelves at retail liquor stores in NSW, ACT and Queensland.

The affected products include 700ml bottles of Verushka Vodka, Mississippi Bourbon, Los Cabos Tequila, Yachtsman White Rum, Mudgee Rum, Barman’s Choice Whiskey, Hunter Brandy and Her Choice Gin.


“These products may cause illness if consumed,” the recall notice reads.


People who have bought any of the recalled bottles of alcohol are being urged to return it to the place of purchase for a full cash refund.

“Any consumers concerned about their health should seek medical advice,” health authorities say.
