Sierra Nevada brewery issues 36-state recall of select beers
Sierra Nevada Brewing Co., one of the nation's largest craft brewers, announced a recall for certain 12-ounce bottles of its pale ales, IPA's and other beers after the discovery of a packaging flaw that could cause glass to chip and fall back into the bottle.
The voluntary recall came after quality inspections were completed at the company’s North Carolina brewery.
In a statement issued Sunday, the brewery said the recall applies to eight different types of its craft beers, including its popular Sierra Nevada Pale Ale, purchased in 36 states across the Midwest, the South and East Coast of the United States.
Sierra Nevada spokeswoman Robin Gregory told Fox News that the company is "replacing beer as we speak and trying to replace as much as possible as soon as possible.” Gregory could not comment on distributors on a state-by-state basis. She also confirmed that since the recall was issued, there have been no confirmed reports of injuries or claims made by Sierra Nevada Consumers.
