Kopparberg is urging customers not to open the bottle or drink the contents and to 'carefully' dispose of the bottle immediately.

A spokesman for the Food Standards Agency (FSA) said: “If you have bought any of the products do not attempt to open the bottle or drink the contents. “Instead handle the bottle carefully and dispose of immediately.”

A spokesman for Kopparberg said: “If you have purchased either of these Kopparberg products, please handle with care and dispose of the bottles in your household waste.

“The drink itself is not affected, although it is recommended that you don’t open it.”
