Prancing Pony cider recalled because ‘cans may rupture’
A line of cider from a local brewery, Prancing Pony, has been recalled.
The Dizzy Donkey Cloudy Apple Cider was recalled on Wednesday, after the company discovered the ciders contain more alcohol than marked, and could potentially burst.
The ciders with a best before of 1/12/2021 were fermented twice.
Food Standards Australia said the product's excess alcohol content and carbonation may cause illness or injury if consumed.
