If you are a fan of Stella Artois like I am, then you really need to check your fridge and make sure you don't have any of these Stella bottles. The company announced a large recall on bottled Stell Artois.

According to the company's press release:

This recall comes after the detection of a glass packaging flaw in some 11.2-ounce (330ml) bottles that may cause a small piece of glass to break off and possibly fall into the beer.  The potentially-affected bottles were manufactured by a third-party which is one of many supplying Stella Artois with glass bottles.

We made the decision to voluntarily recall certain packages potentially containing the affected 11.2-ounce (330ml) bottles as a precautionary measure to ensure the safety of our consumers.

 

Do you have any Stella Artois beer at your house? I do. I'll give you one guess as to what I'll be doing when I get home today.

Here is a rundown from their website on how to check if yours are okay or not:

  1. Does the package have one of the best before dates written below? (check here to see where to look on the bottles for the codes).
  2. If so, does it have the corresponding Package Code?
  3. If so, does it have the corresponding Time Stamp?
