Damaged Corona Beer Bottles
Constellation Brands Inc., which owns the Corona brand in the U.S., said Wednesday that it’s recalling some 12-ounce clear bottles because they may contain small pieces of glass.

The bottles in question make up less than a tenth of 1 percent of Corona Extra 12-ounce clear bottles, according to a statement. They are found in certain 12-packs and 18-packs sold in the U.S. and Guam. The Victor, New York-based company said there were no reports of customers being injured by the glass.
The recall was announced following routine inspections at two Anheuser-Busch InBev breweries, where Constellation’s beer products are produced. The potentially damaged bottles are being removed from store shelves.
