UK: Coors Brewers recalls Grolsch in glass scare

By | 15 September 2008

Coors Brewers has recalled more than 500,000 bottles of Grolsch amid fears the beers may contain pieces of glass.

The recall, involving 526,000 bottles on sale in the Morrisons supermarket, was triggered after three complaints about pieces of glass in the beer, the UK Food Standards Agency announced this weekend (13 September).

A spokesperson for Coors Brewers told just-drinks today (15 September) that all bottles had been removed from shelves after the problem was discovered on Friday. No injuries had been reported.

She said a "manufacturing fault" had caused the problem in a batch of Grolsch produced on 18 July.

Coors opened a consumer helpline this weekend and also took out adverts in four national newspapers to warn consumers of the problem.
