Retailers Ordered to Remove, Cease Selling “Extracto de Malta,” an Unregistered Alcoholic Beverage
On Thursday, August 23, 2012, Attorney General Jeffrey S. Chiesa and Michael Halfacre, Director of the Division of Alcoholic Beverage Control (ABC), announced criminal charges against two individuals in connection to a scheme to sell “Extracto de Malta,” an illicit alcoholic beverage that has been illegally sold at retail shops without liquor licenses.
This week, the New Jersey Division of Consumer Affairs, and its network of County Offices of Consumer Affairs, are alerting small retail food and drink shops, also known as bodegas, throughout the state, many clients of which are concentrated in Hispanic communities, about the fact that the sale of alcoholic beverages without a license is illegal; and that stores have until September 1, 2012 to remove Extracto de Malta from their shelves.
