"All wholesale and retail distributors along with restaurants and pubs that handle the beer have been told to collect the product and send it back to the supplier," the KFDA said.
European inspectors suspect that the chemical got into the beer by mistake since it was used by workers to clean pikes that transport the beverage during the production process, it said.
