Irn-Bru manufacturers A. G. Barr recalled some of their products on Friday due to a manufacturing defect that could cause the caps to “pop off” without warning.
The affected batches are contained to 750ml glass Irn-Bru Regular and Irn-Bru 1901 bottles.
The manufacturer announced the codes of affected batches, which can be found on the necks of bottles.
A. G. Barr clarified that this is an “infrequent, intermittent fault in some of our bottles. The liquid in the bottle is good and tastes as you would expect.”
They added: “As a precautionary measure we are asking consumers who have the affected batches of Irn-Bru Regular and Irn-Bru 1901 in 750ml glass, to open the bottles with care to release the pressure.
“The bottle should be handled carefully, pointed away from the body at arm’s length.”
Affected bottles of Irn-Bru Regular are stamped with MAR 2023, C2 2083 and MAR 2023, C2 2084, and Irn-Bru 1901 bottles are stamped with MAR 2023, C2 2082 , MAR 2023, C2 2087 and MAR 2023, 2088.
