August 21, 2014 — Corona Extra beer is being recalled because some 12-ounce glass bottles may have defects that could allow small particles of glass to break off.
The voluntary recall was issued by Constellation Brands, the distributor of Corona-brand beer. Consumers should check a list of production codes to see if their products are being recalled. The code is printed on the neck of the bottle and the side of the cardboard box on 6-pack, 12-pack, and 18-packs.
The problem was discovered during routine inspections by the company’s quality control laboratory. The source of the problem was a “production error” at one of four glass plants run by third-parties that supply glass bottles for Corona.
The recall notification indicates that only a small percent of bottles are likely affected:
“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.”
Products that 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
