The LCBO, in collaboration with Brock Street Brewery, is issuing a recall of all 473 mL cans of Brock Street Blonde Lager packaged before October, 2016.

This recall results from an LCBO product quality investigation which has confirmed a limited number of cans produced before October, 2016 are undergoing a second fermentation which can cause the cans to burst due to excessive internal pressure.

The following affected product has been removed from LCBO store shelves.
