BOSTON Some bottles of Samuel Adams beer have been voluntarily recalled by its maker, Boston Beer Co.BBC claims some bottles may contain small pieces of glass. The recall was announced after routine inspections at a Cincinnati brewery showed certain glass beer bottles were defective.
Sources mentioned a third-party glass bottle supplier might be responsible. Affected bottles were traced back to one specific location of the five glass plants that supply the bottles.
About 25 percent of the beer company's bottles come from the plant in question, but the company says most likely only 1 percent of its recently bottled product was affected. It has specified that bottles marked with the code "N 35 OI" are included in the recall.
None of the Samuel Adams draft beer, 24-oz bottles of Samuel Adams, Samuel Adams Utopia beers or the Samuel Adams Triple Bock are included in the recall.
