July 27, 2017 (San Diego) – The U.S. State Department has issued a warning for Americans visiting Mexico. Since 2010, over 1.4 million gallons of tainted alcohol have been seized in Mexico. That includes counterfeit booze that reportedly contained pure industrial ethanol used in rubbing alcohol – a substance that can be toxic if consumed.
