AMBAR ALERT: Think before you drink DOS XX Ambar


 

I don’t always drink beer. But when I do, it makes microscopic lacerations in my esophagus on the way down.

Less than 24 hours ago, HeinekenUSA announced a voluntary recall of Dos XX Ambar and a handful of other brands they handle. They posted the following to their facebook page:

Recall Alert: Through routine quality inspections, we found a defect on some of our Dos Equis Ambar brown bottles. As a result, we have made the decision to issue a partial, voluntary recall of these affected products. Please view the following video or visit www.HeinekenUSA.com for more information.

 

It’s no reason to panic as the number of affected bottles is believed to be below 1%, but we at Boozin Blog advocate safe drinking and would hate for any of our fearless readers to try to enjoy a beer with “small grains or particles of glass … [separated] from the inside lip of the bottle and [fallen] into the liquid.”

Here are the affected bottles, from the Heineken website:

  • Carta Blanca 12-ounce brown bottles in 6-packs and 12-packs
  • Dos Equis Ambar 12-ounce brown bottles in 6-packs and 12-packs
  • “Best of Mexico” 12-pack variety package (which contains the impacted Dos Equis Ambar brown bottle and Indio 12-ounce bottles; this pack is sold only in Texas)
  • “Beers of Mexico” 12-pack and 24-pack variety packages (which contains the impacted Dos Equis Ambar brown bottle
And here is the affected product availability by state (so you can take part in the recall, NOT so you can go find glass-beer, you thrill-seekers):
