Bottles of Corona are being recalled because they may contain small shards of glass floating in the brew.

The recall affects 12-ounce clear glass bottles in certain six-pack, 12-pack and 18-pack packages of Corona Extra.

Customers should check the production codes printed on the neck of the bottles or on the outside of the box to determine if their beer is affected. Click here for a full list of the recalled production codes.

Routine inspections of the company’s quality control lab found that certain bottles had a defect that could cause small particles to break off and fall into the bottle.

The company says it believes that less than 1 percent of the bottles made at the third-party plant are defective, it issued the recall out of an abundance of caution.
