The Canadian Food Inspection Agency has issued a recall for 1.14-litre bottles of Bombay Sapphire London Dry Gin.
The recall has been put in place after if was found that the gin had almost twice the amount of alcohol as stated on the label.
A quality assurance team found that the gin’s alcohol content was 77 per cent, instead of the usual 40 per cent.
'This product is not safe for consumption,' reads the recall statement.
'Consuming a product with an alcohol content of 77% could cause serious illness.'
