Constellation Brands Beer Division, the company which distributes Corona Extra to the United States, announced a voluntary recall of “select packages in the US containing 12-ounce clear glass bottles of its Corona Extra beer that may contain small particles of glass,” the company announced in press release on Saturday, August 15.
The recall was announced after quality control inspections found defects in “certain bottles that could cause small particles of glass to break off and fall into the bottle,” produced at one of four glass plants run by a third party manufacturer. The company believes that less than one percent of bottles produced from the plant may be affected, but is recalling all packages that may contain defective bottles.
The following Corona products are not being recalled and are safe to consume:
Corona Extra cans
Corona Extra 24-pack loose bottles
Corona Extra 24-ounce. bottle
