Fears some Tango drinks may burst


Thousands of cans of certain types of Tango drink are being recalled by the makers over fears they could burst.

Around 100,000 330ml cans of Tango Cherry and Tango Fruit Fling with best before dates of June and July of 2006 are thought to be affected.

It's thought they could burst because of a naturally-occurring yeast which may cause a build-up of carbon dioxide.

This could change the shape of or burst the packaging. Concerned customers should call the makers on 0845 8505222.

The makers, Britvic, said the recall was a "precaution" following a small number of complaints.

"Once we identified that there was an issue with the cans, we recalled them immediately," said a spokesman for the firm.
