Sierra Nevada is recalling beer in the midwest, south, and east coast because of a defect in glass bottles that could cause shards of glass to fall into the beer. The company, the third largest craft brewery by volume, announced their voluntary recall on January 22.
Only beer made at the Mills River brewery in North Carolina are affected. The recall is voluntary, and, according to Sierra Nevada, only around 0.01 percent of bottles are damaged. The brewery hasn’t been informed of any complaints or injuries.
Canned beer, draft beer, variety packs, large-format beer, all beer made at the Chico brewery, beer packaged before Dec. 5, and beer packaged after Jan. 8 are not included in the recall. To find which brewery your beer came from, look for either an “M” (for Mills River) or a “C” (for Chico) on the bottle date code printed on the shoulder of the beer bottle.
Here are the states impacted by the recall:
