Beer is being recalled due to health fears because it contains TOO MUCH alcohol
- Mango Sour Beer Experiences ‘Second Fermentation’
- Cans with an expiration date of September 7 should be discarded
An Australian brewery has issued an urgent recall of one of their most popular beers over fears that the alcohol content was too high.
Consumers have been told not to open or drink the affected cans due to a “secondary fermentation” in Big Shed Brewing’s Mango Sour Beer.
In a warning issued Friday, Food Standards Australian New Zealand said the drink “may cause illness/injury if consumed.”
Cans with an expiration date of September 7 may not be consumed.

The recall affects bottle shops in NSW, ACT, Queensland and South Australia.
According to the Food Standards Department, drinking the beer is potentially unsafe.
“Consumers should not drink or open this product and should dispose of it safely,” they said in the statement.
“Contact Big Shed Brewing Concern for safe disposal instructions and to arrange for a refund.”
Mango Sour Beer’s brewers say the drink “brings back those summer memories of enjoying a Mango Weiss bar after a hot day at the beach.”
Pacer Beer, produced by Fortitude Brewing Company, was also recalled due to fears it contained too much alcohol
The popular drink is sold at Dan Murphy’s, as well as the Big Shed Brewing brewery in Adelaide.
The urgent recall comes after a batch of Pacer Beer also underwent a “secondary fermentation” earlier this week.
Producer Fortitude Brewing Company recalled the product Wednesday over fears that the alcohol content in the recalled batch could exceed 2.8 percent.
This means that Aussies may unknowingly drink a full-bodied beer by accident, not realizing that they may have exceeded the legal limit while driving.
