Heineken USA has issued a voluntary product recall for 12-ounce bottles of Buckler non-alcohol brew. The recall, issued as a precaution, covers approximately 15,000 cases of product sold to consumers since 1 March.

Heineken has discovered that, due to a production error, a very small percentage (less than 0.05%) of the Buckler product may contain an amount of yeast that has not been removed through the normal pasteurisation process. The result of the excess yeast is a product which is cloudy in appearance and which may, over time, contain slightly higher levels of alcohol than the normal Buckler specification of less than 0.5% alcohol by volume.

Although there is no risk whatsoever to public health, Heineken USA said, it has decided to voluntarily recall the product.

Heineken USA asks any consumers who may have affected product to call 1-800-HEINEKEN between the hours of 9am and 8pm EDT, for further direction.

No other company brands are impacted in any way. The company has apologised for any inconvenience to its consumers and customers.
