Corona Recalls Beer Because it May Contain Shards of Glass

Luckily no one's been hurt

Enjoying a nice cold beer after work is totally chill, until you start bleeding from the mouth that is. Corona is recalling 12- and 18-packs of Corona Extra after routine quality control inspections found that some bottles contained shards of glass, reports Time.

The company says it hasn't been notified of any customer injuries, and claims the "potentially affected bottles represent less than one-tenth of one percent of Corona Extra 12-ounce clear bottles in the marketplace" — but obviously it's better to be safe than sorry in such cases where litigation would be sure and swift.

Cans are not affected by the recall, nor is any form of Corona Light; the affected products have been pulled from stores, and the company says anyone who purchased a product with the affected production codes can return it for a full refund.

Last summer, food manufacturing giant Kraft recalled millions of packages of cheese slices because in some cases, a strip of the plastic packaging film was staying adhered to the cheese. That certainly doesn't sound as dangerous as glass particles, but nonetheless three customers reported they had choked as a result of it.
