Corona’s breezy branding is taking a bit of a hit this month as a voluntary recall over “small particles of glass” has the company asking would-be guzzlers to be extra cautious about their beer.

The recall (the second related to the company in two years) was announced on Wednesday, as Constellation Brands Beer Division announced the issue facing select runs of Corona Extra 12-packs and 18-packs. The bottles in question can be determined by visiting a designated wing on Corona’s website and a visual aid is provided to assist customers in figuring out what to look for. (Aside from bits of things that would turn you into a supporting actor in Saw if you drank them.)

It’s being stressed that the recall only impacts a small fraction of the bottles from the Corona Extra brand. Constellation Brands claims the amount of beers facing this issue can be measured in a fraction of a precent.

“We’re initiating an immediate voluntary recall of Corona Extra 12-packs and 18-packs with deposit labels in the U.S. that may contain small particles of glass. This recall is very limited in scope, as potentially affected bottles represent less than one-tenth of one percent of Corona Extra 12-ounce clear bottles in the marketplace (we estimate this to be approximately 1 in every 5,000 bottles). While the number of potentially impacted bottles is relatively small, we’re initiating this recall as a precaution to ensure the safety of consumers.”

At the moment, the beverage giant says there haven’t been any consumer complaints about this issue, but customers that purchased beer that’s in the recall category can contact the company for reimbursement. Essentially, it’s a case of look responsibly before you drink responsibly.
