The Constellation Brands Beer Division has announced a voluntary recall of select Corona Extra 12-packs and 18-packs of 12-oz. clear bottles with deposit labels in the U.S. and Guam.
These bottles may contain small particles of glass, the company said in a press release.
Bottles affected represent “less than one-tenth of one percent of Corona Extra 12-ounce clear bottles in the marketplace,” the company said. Production codes affected include:
Corona Extra 12-Pack Bottles (Deposit)
A016___4 through B246___4
L285___4 through L315___4
If the last digit is not a 4, then the bottle is unaffected by the recall. If the last digit is a 4, check the first four characters. If the first four characters fall between A016 through B246 OR L285 through L315, visit coronaextrausa.com/recall or call (866) 204-9407.
Corona Extra 18-Pack Bottles (Deposit)
A216___8 through B226___8
If the last digit is not an 8, this product is unaffected by the recall. If the last digit is an 8, check the first four characters. If the first four characters fall between A216 through B226, visit coronaextrausa.com/recall or call (866) 204-9407.
This recall comes after routine quality assurance inspections at two AB InBev breweries that produce some of Constellation Brands’ beer products on an interim basis. Constellation is recalling select packages of Corona Extra that may contain defective bottles as a precaution to ensure the safety of consumers.
To date, the company has received no consumer complaints or reports of injuries resulting from the affected bottles.
All recalled products are being removed from the market.
