The problem, according to a press release (PDF) issued by Sierra Nevada, is “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.”
Affected beers include Sierra Nevada Pale Ale, Hop Hunter IPA, Torpedo Extra IPA and others, which were bottled and packaged at its brewery in Mills River, N.C., from Dec. 5, 2016 to Jan. 13, 2017. The products were sold in 36 states across the East Coast, South, and Midwest.
A complete list of beers included in the recall, as well as additional details on how to identify the affected beer can be found on the Sierra Nevada website.
“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,” the company said.
Sierra Nevada is urging consumers to discard any beers affected by this recall, and says it will refund customers for the full purchase price they paid. To date, no injuries have been reported in connection with the problem
