INVESTIGATION LAUNCHED AFTER FEARS WOMAN MAY HAVE DRUNK COUNTERFEIT VODKA
CAMBRIDGESHIRE: Trading standards officers have launched an investigation after fears that a woman admitted to hospital with alcohol poisoning may have been drinking counterfeit vodka.
Cambridgeshire County Council officers were alerted by the Health Protection Agency in Huntingdon after the woman was admitted to Addenbrooke's Hospital, Cambridge.
Trading Standards officer David Broughton said: "We are in the early stages of this investigation but want to warn residents to check for counterfeit vodka. It is very worrying that someone has had to be treated in hospital from possibly drinking these fake spirits.
"Please make sure that if you have a bottle of Glen's Vodka that it is not counterfeit and if it is please ring Consumer direct on 0845 404506. I would also like to warn people to only buy alcohol from reputable licensed premises."
Counterfeit Glen's Vodka has previously been found on sale in Cambridgeshire.
The bottles which have so far been found contained higher quantities of methanol than is normal. So far the bottles are 70cl and can be identified as they do not have the AGC logo on the base of the bottle. Genuine bottles of Glen's vodka have the AGC logo and 78cl 58mm Cl 2173 embossed on the bottom.
