An urgent recall has been issued for a popular brand of kombucha, amid fears its bottles might explode.

Queensland Health posted the warning across social media on Friday, revealing a version of the fermented drink was to be recalled. 

The hazard was caused by a potential high level of pressure which may result in the cap to burst open and cause injury.

Affected products in the recall include Organic Kombucha Raspberry Lemon 330ml and Organic Kombucha Lemon Lime & Bitters in both 330ml and 750ml. 

Customers are being urged by Queensland Health not to open the drinks and ‘dispose of them carefully’. 

Each of the affected versions are sold at all ALDI stores and are hazardous regardless of the use-by date. 

Buyers seeking a refund should visit the ALDI store of purchase in order to receive a full cash refund. 

Kombucha has become widely lauded in recent years due to its reported health benefits with some saying the drink is as beneficial to the gut as yoghurt.

Some critics however remain unconvinced, citing the drink’s high sugar content which can often range from 10-15 grams per serve.
