The company, Apollo Bay Distillery, says it has sold a number of the bottles with no seal, which have been labelled as gin but actually contain the sanitiser. Hand sanitiser is not safe to drink and should not be consumed.
The company said at least nine bottles of the sanitiser, labelled as "SS Casino Gin" were sold between June 5 and June 7.Advertisement Advertise with NZME.
