Stella Artois Recalls Beer Bottles

CBJ — Stella Artois says it’s recalling beer packaged in 330mL glass bottles as a safety precaution.

The company says some bottles have a flaw that may cause a small piece of glass to break off and possibly fall into the beer.

Stella Artois said the bottles were manufactured by one of its many suppliers, which wasn’t identified. The company says it is recalling less than1% of all bottled beer it sells in North American every year, and the number of impacted bottles is likely to be a fraction of that 1%.

The recall applies to packages of six, 12, 18 and 24 bottles of Stella Artois and “Best of Belgium” multi-packs sold in the U.S. and Canada. The recalls also apply to Stella Artois Legere six and 12 packs sold in the United States.

The affected packages have codes 49, 52, or 55 and best-before dates ranging from Feb. 13, 2018, to Feb. 2, 2019. The Canadian dates range from Feb. 20, 2018, to Sept. 26, 2018.
