Corona Recalls Beer After Finding Shards of Glass in Bottles

1 minute read

Beer maker Corona issued a recall on some of its products after finding something other than limes in the bottle.

Routine quality assurance inspections revealed that there were small shards of glass in some 12-pack and 18-pack bottles, with deposit labels in the U.S. and Guam, according to Corona’s U.S. owner Constellation Brands.

Corona did not disclose the number of bottles affected but said it was a relatively small proportion. Constellation, based in Victor, N.Y., says it hasn’t received reports of customers being injured by glass.

“The safety and well-being of consumers is our top priority and we take matters pertaining to the quality of our products very seriously,” said Paul Hetterich, president of Constellation Brands Beer Division. “We’re committed to doing everything possible to complete this recall quickly and ensure the safety of our consumers and integrity of our products.”
