The Blinding Truth of Counterfeit Vodka

September 18, 2008 § Leave a comment

Dublin city officials have shut down an illegal factory producing dangerous counterfeit Spar Imperial Vodka, distributed through street vendors.

Produced in unhygienic conditions, experts say the counterfeit vodka may smell like acetone or nail varnish, and could contain potentially harmful levels of methanol, which could lead to blindness.

No recall has been issued at this time. The Food Standards Agency of Ireland warns consumers that the only legitimate route of purchase is through licensed liquor stores.
