Angry Orchard Recalls Hard Ciders Because Glass Bottles May Shatter Before Being Opened
If you have a 12-pack of Angry Orchard hard cider, you might want to return it immediately.
The hard cider company posted a notice on their website saying that varieties of the Crisp Apple bottles are being recalled.
These ciders have been showing signs of refermentation in the bottle, which could increase carbonation levels and cause the bottles to burst due to increased pressure — especially if they’re not stored in a refrigerator.
There is nothing wrong with the cider itself, and it poses no health risk. Affected bottles have the Freshness Matter codes June 2016 1665C and June 2017 1805C. These Angry Orchard Crisp Apple ciders are sold as a case or 12-pack. The bottles also have the code C1665 and C1805.
If you have purchased Crisp Apple hard ciders, Angry Orchard advises you to exercise caution and throw away the bottle in an outside container. Consumers can contact Angry Orchard to receive a full refund.
“The cider poses no health risk, but it does not meet our high quality standards,” Angry Orchard said in a statement.
