Beermaker recalls bottles because of glass problem

04 April 2018

The Belgian-based Anheuser-Busch InBev (AB InBev) issued the recall after discovering that one of its third-party European bottlers was using equipment that could cause glass to break off and fall into the bottle.

The recalled bottles come from a production facility operated by a third party that produces less than one percent of Stella Artois bottled beer in North America annually, and Stella Artois believes the number of affected bottles will "be far less than this", the announcement said.

If you see the production code numbers 49, 52, or 55 combined with the best-before date range of February 20, 2018 - September 26, 2018, you should not drink them.

The brand also released a list of barcodes which may indicate which bottles already on the market are affected by the flaw.

The company says packages that are affected have package codes of 49, 52 or 55 and best-before dates ranging from February 20, 2018, to September 26, 2018, in Canada. But officials chose to recall certain packages as a precaution. The codes can be found on the back label of the bottles and on the side of the cardboard cartons for the 12-packs, 18-packs and 24-packs of 11.2-ounce (330ml) bottles.

The spokesman urged members of the public not to consume the affected batches of the product if they have purchased any.

Stella Artois global brand VP Christina Choi said: "The safety of our consumers is our top priority".

Any consumer who is in possession of a potentially affected Stella Artois bottle included in the recall is eligible for reimbursement.
