    Beer drinkers, beware.

    Constellation Brands Beer Division announced a voluntary recall of select Corona Extra 12-packs and 18-packs that may contain small glass particles. The affected beer product was distributed in the United States.

    The vast majority of Corona Extra products are not affected by this recall, according to Constellation Brands, and no injuries have been reported.

    The company estimates the issue to affect about 1 in every 5,000 bottles, impacting less than one-tenth of one percent of Corona Extra 12-ounce clear bottles in the marketplace.

    Consumers may check the 8-digit alphanumeric code printed on the side panels of the cardboard cartons of 12-packs and 18-packs, and on the necks of Corona Extra 12-ounce bottles, to determine if their products are part of the recall. The list of production codes that are part of the recall are listed here.

    Constellation Brands Beer Division says do not consume the product if your Corona Extra is a part of the recall. 

    For more information and to submit for reimbursement, contact the Corona Extra consumer call center at 866-204-9407 or report the product recall here.

    This is the second recall of Corona Extra in two years due to potential hazardous glass particles. A similar voluntarily recall was announced in August 2014.

    Corona issued a recall on beers that may contain shards of glass on Wednesday, March 9, 2016. Affected bottles of Corona and their serial numbers are seen in this handout photo provided by Corona USA.
