Fireball, the cinnamon-flavored whisky that recently played a starring role in a GoPro wedding video, has been pulled from store shelves abroad for containing too much of a chemical that’s also found in antifreeze.
Finland, Sweden and Norway have nixed Fireball over the level of propylene glycol in it, though here in the US, you can still buy it at your leisure. Usually, the formula for Fireball that’s sent to Scandinavia doesn’t contain this chemical. But a batch accidentally shipped.
Here in the US, the chemical is allowed and people have been drinking it liberally up to this point. But if there are a number of countries raising a red flag, it might prompt people to reconsider those nasty shots.
