LOS ANGELES (CBSLA) — Stella Artois has issued a voluntary recall of some of its 11.2-ounce bottles of Stella Artois beer in the U.S. and Canada that may contain particles of glass.

The potentially affected bottles are “limited in scope” and were manufactured in a third-party production facility. Officials said the recall, which impacts less than 1 percent of Stella Artois glass bottles, is being done to ensure the safety of consumers. (photo credit: Anheuser-Busch Companies)

The Belgian beer brand, owned by Anheuser-Busch InBev, said the recall covers less than 1 percent of its glass bottles sold in North America.

The recall applies to Stella Artois 6-packs, 12-packs, 18-packs, 24-packs, “Best of Belgium” multi-packs in the U.S. and Canada, and Stella Artois Légère 6-packs and 12-packs in the U.S.

The move comes in response to the discovery of a glass packaging flaw at one the company’s third-party production facilities that could cause a small piece of glass to break off and fall into the bottle.

“The safety of our consumers is our top priority. While the number of potentially-affected glass bottles is very small, we are recalling these Stella Artois packages as a precautionary measure,” said Christina Choi, Global Brand VP, Stella Artois. “Our team of technical experts has been working with our third-party glass bottle supplier to ensure this packaging flaw has been addressed.”
