Bottles of Sriracha Hot Chili Sauce recalled due to "exploding contents"
Yes, you read that headline correctly. Exploding. Chili. Sauce.
There is a certain expectation that hot chili sauce will be somewhat explosive, but we're fairly sure that this isn't what the producers of the product had in mind.
According to the Food Safety Authority of Ireland (FSAI), as per a statement issued today (Friday 29 November), the Sriracha Hot Chili Sauce (pictured below), with the best before date of March 2021, and a pack size of 740ml, has been recalled.
The official reason given why is as follows:
"The above batch of Sriracha Hot Chili Sauce is being recalled due to the risk of the contents exploding once the bottle is opened. This poses a risk of hot chili sauce irritating eyes or skin."
So if you have bought this brand of chili sauce, be sure to return it.
