Warning over dodgy vodka

PEOPLE are being warned by the Food Standards Agency not to drink an illegal brand of vodka called Drop Vodka, which has been found on sale in some shops.

The product is not registered in the UK and could be harmful.

Usually, food and drink goes through rigorous testing before it is placed on the market but because ‘Drop Vodka’ has not been through this process the Agency cannot be sure what is in the product.

Tests carried out have identified the presence of propan-2-ol and methanol in some of the vodka, and other substances that could harm people’s health.

If consumers discover any ‘Drop Vodka’ on sale, they should contact their local authority or call the Food Standards Agency food fraud hotline on 020 7276 8527.
