Corona Extra Beer Recalled Because Glass Particles Don’t Go Down So Smoothly

affectedcoronaThat’s not an extra unripe lime interrupting a smooth pull of the beer — the makers of Corona Extra say some 12-ounce bottles of the brew have been recalled for having small glass particles in them.

Constellation Brands Beer Division announced the voluntary recall in a press release today, saying that certain six-packs, 12-packs and 18-packs of 12-ounce clear glass bottles might come with free glass shards.

Consumers who have purchased these kinds of bottles should check the production code — an eight-digit alphanumeric code printed on the necks of the bottles and side panels on the cardboard packages — against the below list:

Corona Extra six-packs: G014C059, G024C059, G064A059, G064C059, G074B059, G104C049, G114C049, G124C049, G134C049, G144C049, G154C049, G164C049, G244C049, G254A049, G264A049, G274A049, G304C059.
