The Boston Beer Company announced a voluntary recall of select 12-ounce bottles of its Samuel Adams beer which may contain small grains or bits of glass.
The precautionary recall comes after routine quality control inspections at the company’s Cincinnati brewery detected defects in certain beer bottles, manufactured by a third-party glass bottle supplier that might cause small bits of glass to break off and possibly fall into the bottle. The affected bottles come from only one of the five glass plants that supply the company with bottles.
The affected products are embossed on the base of the bottles with the following marking: The letter “N” followed by the number “35” followed by the letters “OI.”
Boston Beer has set up for website for consumers where they may enter bottle codes to see if they have bottles that have been recalled.
