Sierra Nevada Recalls 8 Of Their Beers In 36 States

There’s one thing that we all share in common, and that is the love for craft beer from all around the world. There is nothing better than enjoying a nice cold one after a long day. Whether you stick to your daily Bud Light, or explore the tastes and flavors of all the rising craft brews, the last thing you want to worry about is not enjoying that beer. Unfortunately if you love Sierra Nevada you better be careful, and cautious, if you continue to still drink there Pale Ale.

“We have announced a voluntary recall of select 12-ounce bottles that may contain a small glass packaging flaw. This recall comes after quality inspections at our Mills River, North Carolina, brewery detected a very limited number of bottles with a flaw that may result in loss of carbonation and a small piece of glass to break off and possibly fall into the bottle, causing a risk for injury. While we believe this concern impacts roughly 1 in every 10,000 (0.01%) of our bottles packaged during this time, Sierra Nevada has set the standard for quality in the craft brewing industry since 1980 and we have decided to take this precaution to ensure the safety of our consumers.  To-date, we have not received any consumer reports of injuries resulting from the potentially affected bottles and we are working with our suppliers to determine the root cause of the issue.

The recall applies to product purchased in the following Midwest, Southern and East Coast states: AL, AR, CT, DC, DE, FL, GA, IA, IL, IN, KS, KY, LA, MA, MD, ME, MI, MN, MO, MS, NC, NH, NJ, NY, OH, OK, PA, RI, SC, SD, TN, TX, VA, VT, WI and WV.
