Corona voluntarily recalling certain beers

Constellation Brands Beer Division said Wednesday it’s voluntarily recalling certain Corona Extra 12-packs and 18-packs because they may have small glass particles.

The clear bottles have deposit labels in the U.S. and Guam. “This recall is very limited in scope, as potentially affected bottles represent less than one-tenth of one percent of Corona Extra 12-ounce clear bottles in the marketplace,” the company said.

Production codes for the potentially impacted bottles are listed here. Consumers should check if they have an affected product by checking for the 8-digit alphanumeric code printed on the side panels of the cardboard cartons of 12-packs and 18-packs, and on the necks of Corona Extra 12-ounce bottles (see image to the right).

The company said the problem was discovered during inspections. “To date, the company has received no consumer complaints or reports of injuries resulting from the affected bottles,” Constellation Brands Beer Division said.

If you have the recalled products, call (866) 204-9407 for instructions on reimbursement.

Most Corona Extra products are not part of this recall.

The company issued a similar recall in 2014.
