Constellation Brands Beer Division has announced a voluntary recall of select 12-pack and 18-pack bottles of Corona Extra because of concerns that the bottles may contain small pieces of glass.

Potentially affected bottles make up less than one-tenth of 1% of Corona Extra 12-ounce clear bottles, the company said this week. There have been no reports of injuries so far.

“The safety and well-being of consumers is our top priority, and we take matters pertaining to the quality of our products very seriously,” said Paul Hetterich, president of Constellation Brands Beer Division.

“We’re actively working with our distributor partners and retailers to quickly resolve the matter.”
