The Czech Beverage Industry Company, producer of Vyškov label beer, has been forced to recall its non-alcoholic brew, Vyškovské Beer Alkostop, after The Czech Agriculture and Food Inspection Authority (CAFIA) discovered that it contains more than three times the amount of alcohol permitted in a non-alcoholic beverage, Novinky.cz is reporting.
A laboratory analysis of a sample taken directly from the manufacturer found that the beer contains a volume of 1.6 percent alcohol. The maximum allowable alcohol content for non-alcoholic beer is just 0.5 percent.
The authority says the brewery has failed to comply with its label which indicates the volume of alcohol at the regulation 0.5 percent.
In addition, inspectors cited the company for potentially creating “complications in everyday situations such as driving a car” and have ordered it to withdraw the product from shelves until mid-September.
The Czech Beverage Industry Company operates a brewery in Vyškov, in South Moravia.
