The BC Liquor Distribution Branch is recalling three types of Smirnoff Ice coolers due to concerns over possible glass contamination.
“The move comes after the product’s supplier, Diageo Canada, voluntarily recalled several Smirnoff Ice products because of the possibility they may contain small pieces of glass,” the Ministry of Small Business and Red Tape Reduction and Responsible for Liquor BC Liquor Distribution Branch said Wednesday.
The Canadian Food Inspection Agency also issued a public food recall warning, advising consumers to avoid drinking the products.
The Smirnoff products which were sold in B.C. now being recalled are:
* Smirnoff Ice 12-pack, 330ml bottle, lot number L5210;
* Smirnoff Ice Cranberry and Lime, four-pack, 330ml bottle, lot number L5206;
* Smirnoff Ice Peach Bellini, four-pack, 330ml bottle, lot number L5231.
Customers should return recalled products to the store where they were purchased to receive a full refund.
Outside of B.C., several other Smirnoff Ice products are being recalled in parts of Canada where they were sold.
