Sierra Nevada Beer Issues 36-state Recall Over Chipped Glass

 Tuesday, January 24, 2017

Sierra Nevada is recalling its beer in 36 states because glass can break off and fall into the bottle. The company said an inspection of its brewery in Mills River, North Carolina, "detected a very limited number of bottles with a flaw that may cause a small piece of glass to break off and possibly fall into the bottle, creating a risk for injury." The recall applies to beer sold from Maine to Florida and across the Midwest, as far west as Texas and South Dakota. The brewer named eight brands at risk for chipped glass: the flagship brand Pale Ale, Beer Camp Golden IPA, Sidecar Orange Pale Ale, Torpedo Extra IPA, Tropical Torpedo, Nooner, Hop Hunter and Otra Vez.
