Constellation Brands Beer Division Voluntarily Recalls Select Packages Of 12 oz. Corona Extra

CHICAGO, Aug. 15, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Constellation Brands Beer Division today announced a voluntary recall of select packages in the U.S. containing 12-ounce clear glass bottles of its Corona Extra beer that may contain small particles of glass. The voluntary recall covers 12-ounce clear bottles in select six-pack, 12-pack and 18-pack packages containing bottles with the production codes listed below.

This recall comes after routine inspections in the company's quality control laboratory detected defects in certain bottles that could cause small particles of glass to break off and fall into the bottle. The affected bottles came from one of four glass plants run by a third party manufacturer, which supplies the company the bottles. While the company believes that less than 1 percent of the bottles produced from the plant may be affected, it is recalling select packages that may contain defective bottles to ensure the safety of consumers.

To date the company has received no reports of injuries resulting from the affected bottles.

The following products are not being recalled:

Corona Extra cans
Corona Extra 24-pack loose bottles
Corona Extra 24 oz. bottle
Corona Extra draft beer
Corona Light bottles
Corona Light cans
Corona Light draft beer
Corona Familiar
Coronitas

"We are troubled by this development and are working proactively with our distributors, retailers and consumers to resolve this situation as quickly as possible," said Bill Hackett, President of Constellation Brands Beer Division. "Throughout its history, Corona Extra is a brand that has been synonymous with quality, consistency and refreshment. Our entire organization, including our brewers, our production team, and all our employees across our system, is absolutely committed to doing everything possible to complete this recall quickly, and ensure the safety of our consumers and integrity of our product."

Upon discovering the issue, Constellation took prompt action to identify and secure potentially affected product and will work closely with distributors and retailers to minimize the impact on consumers. The company is diligently working to recover potentially affected product that is in retail stores and may have reached consumers.

Legacy systems can restrict companies that are transitioning into digital enterprises. To truly become a lead...
In IT, we sometimes coin terms for things before we know exactly what they are and how they’ll be used. The resulting terms may capture a common set of aspirations and goals – as “cloud” did broadly for on-demand, self-service, and flexible computing.
