GUELPH, ON – Wellington Brewery has issued a recall for cans of a new summer seasonal brand that was released earlier this month.
According to the recall notice, a routine quality control check found that some 473 ml cans of 3 Weeks Notice Pomegranate Witbier with a best before date of November 18th have “undergone secondary fermentation, causing higher levels of CO2 in the cans which has resulted in higher than normal internal pressure inside the cans.”
While no cans have burst at the brewery, Wellington has issued the recall as a precaution. Customers can return cans to the brewery for a full refund, or email email@example.com or call (800) 576-3853 to arrange for product replacement when a new batch is released in several weeks.
This will also mean that the planned LCBO release for the beer will be delayed until the new batch is available.
