Guinness recalls new 0.0 beer over fears of contamination

Guinness 0.0, the Irish stout monolith’s hyped alcohol-free beer, is being recalled across the U.K. and Ireland because of fears of “microbiological contamination.” The beer, which launched last month, has not yet been rolled out to pubs.

Its St. James’s Gate Brewery in Dublin is the source of the beer and thus the contamination, according to the Guardian, with production suspended in order to establish the cause. A spokesperson for the brand issued a statement, saying:

The issue is isolated to Guinness 0.0 and does not impact any other Guinness variants or brands. 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. We are sorry that this has happened.
