Carlsberg Sweden was forced to recall thousands of cans of Pepsi Max after realizing the popular soft drink was actually filled with an alcopop party drink instead.

The 1,872 cans were sent to food chain Lidl in southern Sweden, and contained Xide Citrus Fizz, a ready-mix alcopop party drink with 4.5 percent alcohol content.

"We apologize for what happened and any discomfort it caused," Henric Byström, spokesman at Carlsberg Sweden, said in a statement.

"We take it very seriously and have launched an internal investigation."

Carlsberg added that it would be tough to drink the party drink by mistake, and that the Citrus Fizz was a much lighter colour.
