Consumer Level Recall Phoenix 330mL Cola

Consumer Level Recall Phoenix 330mL Cola (single and 4 pack), Lemonade, Light Cola, Orange Fizz & Raspberry Fizz

Best before dates: 13/04/16 to 07/07/16 (inclusive)

Friday, July 31, 2015: The Better Drinks Co is conducting a voluntary, consumer level recall of the above batches of Phoenix 330mL Cola (including 4 packs), Lemonade, Light Cola, Orange Fizz & Raspberry Fizz, packaged in glass.

These products are being recalled as a precautionary measure as the rim of the bottle may have been damaged and the product could contain small glass particles.

This recall affects only the above batches. Other batch codes and other Phoenix products are not affected.

The Better Drinks Co CEO Craig Cotton says that consumer safety is the company’s highest priority and that is why the company has undertaken this recall.
“There have been no consumer reports of damaged rims or glass particles being found. However, consumer safety is our priority and we are activating a voluntary recall as a precautionary measure. Consumers are advised not to consume product from the batches outlined above.

“As soon as we learned of the issue, we implemented a full and comprehensive investigation with our supplier, following which we instigated a recall. We are calling our distributors and customers to alert them and ensure immediate action, as well as setting up an 0800 number for concerned consumers to contact us,” adds Cotton.

These products are sold in cafes, supermarkets, petrol stations and corner stores throughout New Zealand. Consumers are asked to return the products to the place of purchase for a full refund or to call The Better Drinks Co Consumer Enquiries on 0800 577 588 (New Zealand).

We sincerely apologise for any inconvenience caused by this recall. Other Phoenix products are fine for sale. Any current or future orders are also fine for sale.
