Diageo recalls new non-alcoholic Guinness in Britain due to contamination

LONDON, Nov 11 (Reuters) - Diageo recalled its non-alcoholic beer Guinness 0.0 in Britain on Wednesday due to “microbiological contamination”, just over two weeks after launching the product into the competitive and growing market for non-alcoholic beer.

Guinness, the brewer based in Dublin, said on its website the recall was a “precautionary measure” due to contamination that it said might make some cans of Guinness 0.0 unsafe to consume.
