Watch Out, Bros: Corona Is Issuing A Recall Because Their Beer Might Contain Glass Particles
Holy hell. For all my fellow Snappa (or Beer Die) bros out there that have ever die’d up on a sunny Sublime (the band of course) saturated afternoon, only to sink, then shatter glass; you’ll know the terror that ensues for whoever might consider drinking out that busted glass. More terrifying than the prospect of rolling a five and having to chug another brew. Like little glass splinters in the stomach regions is no shit to be trifled with.
“The recall affects about 1 in every 5,000 bottles of beer.
“This recall is very limited in scope, as potentially affected bottles represent less than one-tenth of 1% of Corona Extra 12-ounce clear bottles in the marketplace,” the statement says. “While the number of potentially impacted bottles is relatively small, we’re initiating this recall as a precaution to ensure the safety of consumers.”
And here I thought the greatest, albeit irrational concern for any bro trying to take a sip out his next bottle of the Spring Break Corona Staple was sippin down grains of sand. This is whack man. Fortunately, there’s a method to figure out if your next bottle of Corona Extra comes with an added measure of glass dust:
“To find out whether a bottle has been recalled, check the eight-digit alphanumeric code on the side panel of the cardboard carton that holds the 12-pack or 18-pack of beer. The code is also printed on the necks of the Corona Extra 12-ounce bottles. A full list of the recalled codes can be found on the Corona website. For a refund or questions, call the consumer call center at (866) 204-9407.”
Phew, ’cause nobody wants to deal with shitting out glass. Your anus is not coming back from that. I’m pretty sure that shit’s (literally) life threatening.
