Partial Recall of 11.2-Ounce Bottles of Stella Artois

Limited Stella Artois Recall in the U.S. and Canada

NEW YORK, New York – April 2, 2018 – Stella Artois today announced a recall of select packages containing 11.2-ounce (330ml) bottles of Stella Artois beer that may contain particles of glass. This 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 recall does not affect other Stella Artois packaging formats, such as cans or draft or bottles of any other production codes.

The recall is limited in scope to bottles from one third-party production facility that produces a fraction of Stella Artois bottles. This recall impacts less than 1% of Stella Artois glass bottles sold in North America annually, and affected bottles will be far less than this.

The full list of imported Stella Artois packages that are subject to this recall in the U.S. and Canada is below.

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.

The beer subject to this recall includes Stella Artois cases with a packaging date that falls within the ranges listed below. The codes can be found on the back label of the bottles and on the side of the cardboard cartons for the 12-packs, 18-packs and 24-packs of 11.2-ounce (330ml) bottles. Consumers should check the Stella Artois bottles in their “Best of Belgium” multi-packs.

Consumers can also call our consumer hotline at 1-855-215-5824.
