The problem is due to the continuation of secondary fermentation in the can after it leaves the production line, which increases the alcohol content and the pressure inside the can.

According to Food Standards Australia, beer containing excess alcohol and carbonation can cause illness or injury if consumed.

Consumers should not drink or open these products and should return the products to the place of purchase for a full refund.
