The ABC or local law enforcement will commonly look for contaminated beverages when performing a premises inspection. They will look for a fruit fly or insect inside bottles by inspecting bottles with a flashlight.
You could face a 5-day suspension of your California liquor license if you are found in violation. In minor instances you may get off with a warning, but the best practice is to routinely inspect your own bottles and immediately remove product that may have become contaminated.
If you have questions regarding this issue or if you are facing a suspension and need guidance, please contact our office at (855) 774-9200.
