To help ensure safe and responsible liquor service as well as help curb underage consumption, Albertans are reminded that it is the law in Alberta to ID anyone who looks to be under the age of 25 when buying liquor.
“Keeping liquor away from minors is important to the AGLC, to the industry, and we know it’s important to Albertans too.
Engaging Albertans as an active partner in preventing liquor sales to minors can help increase compliance with liquor laws and facilitate smoother transactions in liquor stores.
Ultimately, this is about ensuring responsible liquor service and satisfied customers.”
- Bill Robinson, President and Chief Executive Officer, AGLC
750ml and 1500ml Mogen David Concord wines pulled from retail shelves - September 29, 2014
Mogen David Concord wine, 750ml and 1500ml bottles, are being removed from sale at all retail locations because the products contain elevated levels of arsenic. Health Canada is conducting a thorough assessment to evaluate any health risks posed by the recalled product.
According to Health Canada, arsenic is a naturally occurring chemical element found in very low levels in many foods. In wines, for example, there are two main sources of arsenic:
- arsenic naturally occurring in soil that gets into the grapes; and
- arsenic contained in pesticides.
To date, no complaints or injuries related to consumption of this specific wine have been reported in Alberta. Consumers who have previously purchased this product may direct any questions or concerns to email@example.com or
