Linkon Maynard, Plant Manager of Carib Brewery (St. Kitts & Nevis Limited), said he is 100 percent certain that there were no expired drinks from the Brewery in circulation.
Maynard made this statement after reports from residents in Nevis that Vita Malt was being distributed and sold with labels stating, “Best before January to December 2002, 2003 and 2004.”
“The expiration dates of the drinks are normally printed in black ink on the shoulder of the bottles,” Maynard said.
He said the Brewery had received a large stock of out-dated expiry label and were trying to use them so they wouldn’t go to waste.
“The drinks are in no way expired and that’s why none of the months and years were highlighted,” said Maynard.
He said that the Brewery had already ordered some new labels and should be receiving them in one and a half months.
Maynard said the labels were indeed misleading but indicated that they would correct the situation as soon as possible.
