A spring break staple is in jeopardy and people need to be made aware. Constellation Brewing recently had to recall certain 12 and 18-packs of Corona Extra due to reports that bottles contained particles of glass.
From LA Times:
“The recall affects about 1 in every 5,000 bottles of beer.
“This recall is very limited in scope, as potentially affected bottles represent less than one-tenth of 1% of Corona Extra 12-ounce clear bottles in the marketplace,” the statement says. “While the number of potentially impacted bottles is relatively small, we’re initiating this recall as a precaution to ensure the safety of consumers.”
I thought the beer shits were bad enough to begin with, but glass and beer squirts? Count me out.
While nobody’s quite sure how glass ended up in these bottles, I’m willing to bet it has something to do with said bottles being made of glass. Deductive reasoning and such. Granted, sand is bound to get in a beer or two, but that’s a couple thousand degrees off being razor sharp and potentially harmful. Still icky though.
Luckily, there is a means of figuring out whether your beer is one in the .001% that is tainted.
“To find out whether a bottle has been recalled, check the eight-digit alphanumeric code on the side panel of the cardboard carton that holds the 12-pack or 18-pack of beer. The code is also printed on the necks of the Corona Extra 12-ounce bottles. A full list of the recalled codes can be found on the Corona website. For a refund or questions, call the consumer call center at (866) 204-9407.”
Since no spring break is complete without a few Coronas and a lime on deck, make sure to double check that site before you start partying it up. Your anus will thank you..
