Corona Beer Recall

Constellation Brands Beer Division announced a voluntary recall of select packages in the U.S. containing 12-ounce clear glass bottles of its Corona Extra beer that may contain small particles of glass. The voluntary recall covers 12-ounce clear bottles in select six-pack, 12-pack and 18-pack packages containing bottles with the production codes listed below.

This recall comes after routine inspections in the company's quality control laboratory detected defects in certain bottles that could cause small particles of glass to break off and fall into the bottle. The affected bottles came from one of four glass plants run by a third party manufacturer, which supplies the company the bottles. While the company believes that less than 1 percent of the bottles produced from the plant may be affected, it is recalling select packages that may contain defective bottles to ensure the safety of consumers.

To date the company has received no reports of injuries resulting from the affected bottles.

The following products are not being recalled:

Corona Extra cans, Corona Extra 24-pack loose bottles, Corona Extra 24 oz. bottle, Corona Extra draft beer, Corona Light bottles, Corona Light cans, Corona Light draft beer, Corona Familiar Coronitas

Upon discovering the issue, Constellation took prompt action to identify and secure potentially affected product and will work closely with distributors and retailers to minimize the impact on consumers. The company is diligently working to recover potentially affected product that is in retail stores and may have reached consumers.
