Here’s a way to keep a way the winter’s chill, 

In a statement issued Monday Finland’s state alcohol monopoly Alko said that the Fireball brand liqueur had been prepared according to North American food regulations and therefore does not meet the requirements of the European Union’s tighter regulations concerning recommended levels of propylene glyco.

According to Alko, the substance isn’t necessarily detrimental to individuals’ health, although it is used in a wide range of cases from de-icing compounds in the aviation industry to the preparation of snack foods. It’s also used in alcoholic beverages as a flavor carrier.

Last weekend the Swedish state alcohol retailer Systembolaget withdrew Fireball from distribution after Alko revealed that the beverage contained excessive levels of propylene glycol.

Alko said that Fireball liqueur is sold in several European countries, but only so far it is the only retailer to have filed a complaint about the matter.

While Sweden and Finland are currently restricting the sale and consumption of Fireball whisky, North American sales of the popular spirit are unaffected. Moreover, no change in Fireball whisky’s composition prompted the European recalls: the move was due to differing regulatory protocols. Fireball has not commented on the Finnish and Swedish recalls.
