Sierra Nevada Recalling Defective Beer Bottles in 37 States

Select 12-ounce bottles may contain a small glass packaging flaw.

Sierra Nevada Brewing Co. has announced a recall of beer bottles in 37 states. The company announced the recall on its website, citing a small glass packaging flaw that may be present in select 12-ounce bottles. The third largest U.S. craft brewery estimates it could impact one in every 10,000 bottles packaged at this time.

The beers infected include Sierra Nevada Pale Ale, Beer Camp Golden IPA, Sidecar Orange Pale Ale, Torpedo Extra IPA, Tropical Torpedo, Nooner, Hop Hunter and Otra Vez.

"We have announced a voluntary recall of select 12-ounce bottles that may contain a small glass packaging flaw," the company announced Jan. 22. "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."
