The Liquor Control Board of Ontario is recalling 1.14-litre bottles of Bombay Sapphire London Dry Gin because the incorrect alcohol content is shown on the label.

The LCBO says the affected product has been removed from all of its stores shelves.

The Crown corporation says the recall was initiated after an investigation by its quality assurance team found the alcohol content was 77 per cent, instead of the 40 per cent declared on the label.

Customers and licensees are advised to return the recalled product to any LCBO store for a full refund.

This is the second such incident in Ontario in as many months.

An Ontario-made brand of vodka was pulled from shelves in early March because one batch contained double the stated amount of alcohol.

The batch of Georgian Bay brand vodka was not properly diluted prior to bottling, resulting in 654 bottles containing 81 per cent alcohol instead of 40 per cent as shown on the label.
