Public warned after vodka which could cause blindness or death seized
The public are being warned after vodka was seized on sale – which could cause blindness or death.
The fake brand was seized in Hull, East Yorkshire, and experts are worried it could contain industrial-strength alcohol which could lead to serious health issues.
The bottles have no customs duty stamp and the barcode does not link to a real product.
A tweet released by Hull City Council News said: “Warning: if you spot ‘Radanoff’ vodka for sale, do not buy or drink it.
“Radanoff is a fake brand seized recently in Hull.
“It could contain industrial alcohol which can cause blindness or death.
“If you see Radanoff, contact Trading Standards on: 01482 300 300.
“Tests are still to be carried out on the bottles seized – until those are complete there’s no way of knowing what’s in the bottles.
“However, we *do* know this product has no customs duty stamp and the barcode doesn’t link to a real product.”
