A soft drink sold at BWS has been recalled over concerns it could explode and cause serious injury to consumers.

The recall for the PS Blackstrap Ginger drink, by parent company The Bubble Verse, was issued on Tuesday due to the “potential for the bottle to rupture due to a secondary fermentation”, Product Safety Australia said.

The 330ml bottles, sold in BWS stores across NSW, could have excess carbonation, causing an eruption when it’s opened.

The drink was marketed as something which could be mixed with alcohol to create a cocktail or consumed on its own.

Product Safety urged customers against opening bottles from batch number 280821 with a best before date of August 28, 2021.

“Consumers should not drink or open this product, and should contact The Bubble Verse Pty Ltd for safe disposal instructions and to arrange a refund,” the recall stated.

The bottles were available on shelves between July 13 and November 13.
