The alert was issued after the CFS learned the Canadian Food Inspection Agency issued a notice that the manufacturer of Smirnoff Ice brand alcoholic beverages, Diageo Canada, was voluntarily recalling all affected bottled alcoholic beverages in the country as the products may contain small glass particles.

"After learning of the incident, the CFS immediately liaised with local major retailers and importers but no affected products under the recall have been found so far," a spokesman said.

"The CFS will liaise with the Canadian authorities and will alert the trade to the incident. For the sake of prudence, members of the public are urged not to consume the affected products and the trade should also stop selling the affected products."

The CFS said it would continue to closely monitor the case and take appropriate follow-up action.
