Craft beer maker Bright Brewery has recalled Pineapple Dream Nitro Milkshake Ale cans due to a possible secondary fermentation, which may result in bulging and/or rupture of the can.
The fermentation may result in an ABV of more than 6.2%. Secondary fermentation happens when there is a continued activity of the brewer’s yeast or when the product has a contaminating yeast or bacteria.
The company reassured customers who have already consumed the products are safe. The products include Batch PCD01 of 355ml cans with a best before date of 05/11/21. The Kegs of Pineapple Dream, Pineapple Dream cans that are stored chilled and the stock at the Bright Brewery are not affected.
“Our Pineapple Dream has turned into a Pineapple nightmare,” Bright Brewery marketing manager Laura Gray said.
“We really pushed the boundaries with this beer, adding 30% pineapple juice to the brew, and every time you add a non-traditional ingredient to beer, you increase the risk of something going wrong.”
The beers are sold in Victoria, New South Wales, ACT, Queensland, Western Australia and Tasmania. Customers are advised to safely dispose of the cans and get a full refund where the product was purchased. Wholesale customers will receive full credit for the products.
