Corona Extra Beer Recalled Over Dangerous Glass Particles

Who loves a refreshing, ice-cold, beer ... filled with glass? Didn't think so.

Wegmans says it is recalling glass bottles of Corona Extra beer because they could contain pieces of glass! Ouch. Officials say routine inspections in the company's quality control lab found defects in certain bottles that could cause small particles of glass to break off into the bottle.

You don't have to give up all Corona products, though. The recall only includes 12-ounce clear bottles - which are sold in 6, 12 and 18 packs. Customers can return the recalled bottles for a full refund.

Glass pieces turning up in glass bottles is not all that surprising. Last year, though, Kellogg pulled 36,000 boxes of Special K Red Berries cereal because it could contain dangerous glass fragments. A few months earlier it pulled 2.8 million boxes of Mini-Wheats were found to contain metal fragments. Not the best way to start your day.
