(KFVS) -

As of Sunday, January 22, Sierra Nevada has issued a select voluntary recall for certain 12-ounce Sierra Nevada beers which may contain a glass packaging flaw.

The list of beers includes:

  • Beer Camp Golden IPA
  • Pale Ale
  • Sidecar Orange Pale Ale
  • Tropical Torpedo
  • Nooner
  • Hop Hunter
  • Otra Vez
  • Torpedo Extra IPA in 12-ounce bottles

The recall comes after quality inspections at the company’s Mills River, North Carolina brewery detected a very limited number of bottles with a flaw that may cause a small piece of glass to break off and possibly fall into the bottle, creating a risk for injury.

The recall applies to product purchased in the Midwest, Southern and East Coast states listed below:

  • Alabama
  • Arkansas
  • Connecticut
  • District of Columbia
  • Delaware
  • Florida
  • Georgia
  • Iowa
  • Illinois
  • Indiana
  • Kansas
  • Kentucky
  • Louisiana
  • Massachusetts
  • Maryland
  • Maine
  • Michigan
  • Minnesota
  • Missouri
  • Mississippi
  • North Carolina
  • New Hampshire
  • New Jersey

  • Ohio
  • Oklahoma
  • Pennsylvania
  • Rhode Island
  • South Carolina
  • South Dakota
  • Tennessee
  • Texas
  • Virginia
  • Vermont
  • Wisconsin
  • West Virginia.

The possibly contaminated beer has been shipped across all states in the Heartland.

“To date, we have not received any consumer reports of injuries resulting from the potentially affected bottles and we are working with our supplier to determine the root cause of the issue,” Mike Bennes, Chief Supply Chain Officer, said.

Sierra Nevada has stopped distributing all affected beer. The company is actively working with distributor and retail partners to remove this beer from retail shelves and hold any further shipments. Consumers who have purchased beer within the scope of this recall will be eligible for full compensation of the purchase price and are advised not to drink it and to dispose of the beer. A website has been set up for updates on the recall and to report purchase. No other Sierra Nevada products are affected by this recall.
