    When liquid is added to the tumbler, this solution may be released, which may result in elevated levels of iron, chromium and nickel. Ingestion of these substances has been associated with a range of health effects.

    The Newfoundland and Labrador Liquor Corporation (NLC) has issued an update on an emergency recall notice for a promotional tumbler offered as a free gift with purchase of Nütrl at store locations. The tumbler manufacturer,  Sunscope, initiated a recall due to a manufacturing defect that may present a safety hazard. Based on testing to date, the manufacturer has determined that some of the tumblers may contain a chemical cleaning solution which has been trapped between the inner walls of the tumbler and contains some levels of sulfuric and phosphoric acids. When liquid is added to the tumbler, this solution may be released, which may result in elevated levels of iron, chromium and nickel. Ingestion of these substances has been associated with a range of health effects including burning of the lips, tongue, throat, stomach, and other tissue damage, nausea, vomiting, stomach cramps and diarrhea. Health effects associated with skin contact with these substances include blistering, burns, pain, and redness. Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled tumbler and call 1(866) 846-1778.
