Bottles of Moët & Chandon champagne are being recalled all across the EU because they may be filled with a liquid form of the hard drug ecstasy.
Moët & Chandon Impérial Ice three-litre bottles are being recalled after reports of intoxication in other EU member states.
Some such bottles are believed to have been tampered with, completely emptied of champagne and filled instead with pure liquid MDMA.
The bottles are sold online by private individuals.
The authorities noted that there are currently no incidents reported in Malta but they are closely monitoring the situation.
"We kindly ask consumers who have purchased this product online not to consume such product," they said.
The three-litre bottles in question have lot number LAJ7QAB6780004.
