Constellation Brands Beer Division Expands List Of Production Codes Involved In Voluntary Recall Of Select Packages Of 12 oz. Corona Extra Bottles

Total Affected Product is Still Less than 1 Percent of Bottles from One Glass Supplier; Company Aims to More Quickly and Effectively Recover Product

CHICAGO, Aug. 23, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Constellation Brands Beer Division announced today that it is expanding the list of production codes consumers should look for to determine whether they have 12-ounce clear glass bottles of Corona Extra involved in a voluntary recall issued in the United States on Friday, August 15. The recall covers packages of Corona Extra in clear 12-ounce bottles sold in six-, 12- and 18-pack packages, because some bottles may contain small particles of glass.

After announcing the recall last week, the company continued and deepened its investigation of the issue. It found that the original list of production codes was not all encompassing and consumers may have affected product that was not identified in the original list of product codes. The company believes that the recall still affects less than 1 percent of the bottles produced by one of its four glass suppliers.

"This updated list clarifies the scope of our recall, and we are making this announcement out of an abundance of caution because our primary concern remains on protecting the safety and well-being of consumers," said Bill Hackett, President of Constellation Brands Beer Division.  "By doing this, we believe we can more quickly and effectively capture the recalled product and remove it from the market."

To date, the company has received no reports of consumers being injured by drinking potentially affected bottles.

Anyone who previously checked codes on Corona Extra in their possession should check again to confirm whether they have potentially affected product. Consumers can determine whether they have potentially affected product by looking at an eight-digit alphanumeric code located on the neck of 12-ounce bottles and on the side panels of 12- and 18-pack cardboard cartons. Consumers can also call 1-866-204-9407 for more help, details or to request a refund.

The following production codes for select Corona Extra 12-ounce bottle packages are included in the recall:

  • Any code that starts with "G" and also ends with "9" on six- and 12-packs
  • Any code that starts with "F29" and also ends with "9" on 18-packs only
  • Any code that starts with "F30" and also ends with "9" on 18-packs only

The above represents an expanded list of production codes included in this recall, however we have made the process easier for consumers to identify if they have potentially affected product.

Consumers who believe they have affected product should call 1-866-204-9407 for more details or to request a refund.

"We are grateful for the hard work of our employees, distributors, and retail partners for all the work they've done to help us contain the affected product. And we thank consumers for the support they've shown us during this recall," Hackett said. "We are doing everything possible to remove any potentially affected product from stores, bars and restaurants as quickly as possible. We regret any inconvenience or concern this recall may cause."

The recall has not been expanded to include additional packages or brands. 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

When growing capacity and power in the data center, the architectural trade-offs between server scale-up vs. scale-out continue to be debated.

It’s worth noting that there are additional, unique advantages that scale-up architectures offer. One big advantage is large memory and compute capacity...
