Deadly vodka batch hits UK shops containing alcohol that could cause blindness

A fake brand of vodka which may contain industrial-strength alcohol and cause serious health issues – and even death – has reached the shelves of UK shops.

Authorities admitted there is no way of knowing what is in bottles of Radanoff, a counterfeit brand of the booze.

Hull City Council warned the public not to buy it.

The bottles have no customs duty stamp and the barcode does not link to a real product.

"Warning: if you spot ‘Radanoff’ vodka for sale, do not buy or drink it. Radanoff is a fake brand seized recently in Hull," the Labour-controlled authority tweeted.

The tweet continued: "It could contain industrial alcohol which can cause blindness or death.

"If you see Radanoff, contact Trading Standards on: 01482 300 300.

"Tests are still to be carried out on the bottles seized – until those are complete there’s no way of knowing what’s in the bottles.

"However, we do know this product has no customs duty stamp and the barcode doesn’t link to a real product."
