Carlsberg puts alcohol in Pepsi cans

pepsi max 6 pack

Carlsberg has had to recall Pepsi Max after a mix up with the packaging.  Instead of putting Pepsi in the cans it actually filled an alcopop party drink, pilule Ide Citrus Fizz, stuff instead.  Ide Citrus Fizz has 4.5 percent alcohol content.

1,872 cans were sent to Lidl in southern Sweden and from there delivered to around ten shops belonging to the international retailer.

Carlsberg was very apologetic for the mistake but pointed out that both drinks have a completely different colour and it was easy to tell them apart.  I am not sure how one tells the colour through the can but maybe people in Sweden have better eyesight than I do.
