Sierra Nevada Brewing Co. Issues Major Beer Recall Affecting 36 States
Here's a recall that may affect your Big Game plans. The Sierra Nevada Brewing Co. announced that they are recalling eight different types of their beers in 36 states across the country.
This voluntary recall came as the result of concerns over some of the bottles possibility having a flaw that could cause glass to chip or break off and fall into the bottle. So far they say there have been no injuries reported so this precautionary recall is in hopes to avoid any from happening. In the company's statement they said,
"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 affected brews include the 12-Ounce bottles of Sierra Nevada's Pale Ale that were produced between December 5th, 2016 to January 8th, 2017. Seven other Sierra Nevada beers that were produced during a broader time range have also been recalled. These seven other beers include 12-ounce bottles of:
- Torpedo Extra IPA
- Tropical Torpedo
- Sidecar Orange Pale Ale
- Beer Camp Golden IPA
- Otra Vez
- Hop Hunter IPA
These beers, if they were produced between December 5, 2016 to January 13, 2017, should not be consumed!
The beers affected that are being recalled all come from the company's Mills River, NC brewery. Beers produced from Sierra Nevada's other brewery (located in Chico, CA) are not being recalled.
