Select packages of 12-ounce Corona Extra are being recalled after it was reported that glass shreds were found in the beer.

According to Corona, the voluntary recall covers 12-ounce clear bottles in select six-pack, 12-pack and 18-pack packages containing bottles with the production codes listed below.

Routine inspections in the company’s quality control laboratory detected the defects in certain bottles that could cause small particles of glass to break off and fall into the bottle.

The affected bottles came from one of four glass plants run by a third party manufacturer that supplies bottles to the company.

The company believes that less than 1 percent of the bottles produced from the plant may be affected, but it is recalling select packages that might contain defective bottles to ensure consumer safety.

To date, the company has received no reports of injuries resulting from the affected bottles.
