Stella Artois voluntarily recalls several of its popular beers after discovering that some of them might contain “particles of glass.”
The recall is over Stella Artois' six packs, 12-packs, 18-packs, 24-packs, "Best of Belgium" multi-packs in the United States and Canada. They are also recalling "Legere" 6-packs and 12-packs in the United States.
Stella Artois said that the affected 11.2-ounce bottles were produced by a third party manufacturing partner.
“The safety of our consumers is our top priority. While the number of potentially-affected glass bottles is very small, we are recalling these Stella Artois packages as a precautionary measure,” said Christina Choi, Global Brand VP of Stella Artois.
“Our team of technical experts has been working with our third-party glass bottle supplier to ensure this packaging flaw has been addressed," she continued.
Stella Artois believes that the total number of potentially affected beer bottles are less than 1% of the glass bottles sold in North America annually.
