Corona Beer Recalled for Glass Particles

Affected bottles make up less than one-tenth of one percent of Corona Extra 12-ounce bottles

Corona is recalling some of its 12-ounce clear bottles because they may contain small pieces of glass, which could be a real buzzkill.

According to a statement from the brand, the bottles affected by this recall make up less than one-tenth of one percent of Corona Extra 12-ounce clear bottles in the marketplace, or approximately one in every 5,000 bottles.

The company has listed out the production codes for the impacted bottles, which are sold in 12- and 18-packs, and includes images to help customers locate the codes on the boxes and bottles. The recall was announced after routine inspections of two Anheuser-Busch InBev breweries, reports Bloomberg. The company says in a FAQ that the defective bottles came from a third-party glass supplier.

There have been no injuries related to the bottles affected by the recall, and customers in possession of affected bottles are asked to dispose of them immediately and to call the company’s consumer call center for a refund.
