Corona Beer Recalled Because There Might Be Glass in the Bottlesby
Beer drinkers are being warned that they may find more than a lime wedge in their Coronas.
Constellation Brands Inc., which owns the Corona brand in the U.S., said Wednesday that it’s recalling some 12-ounce clear bottles because they may contain small pieces of glass.
The bottles in question make up less than a tenth of 1 percent of Corona Extra 12-ounce clear bottles, according to a statement. They are found in certain 12-packs and 18-packs sold in the U.S. and Guam. The Victor, New York-based company said it hasn’t gotten reports of customers being injured by the glass.
The recall was announced after routine inspections at two Anheuser-Busch InBev breweries, which currently produce Constellation’s beer products. The potentially damaged bottles are being removed from store shelves.
“Since learning of this issue, we immediately began working with AB InBev and jointly took prompt action to investigate the issue,” said Paul Hetterich, president of Constellation Brands’ beer division.
