Bell’s Brewery issued an automatic, voluntary recall on specific bottles of Mercury: The Winged Messenger, which it said may contain a slight glass defect on the outside lip that could result in small pieces dislodging from the bottle.
This recall only applies to bottles purchased in specific counties in Michigan (listed below), not the entire packaging run. It does not affect purchases made in any other state or those purchased at the Bell’s General Store in downtown Kalamazoo.
This recall was initiated after a customer contacted Bell’s directly about an issue when removing the crown. No one was injured. An internal investigative process was immediately initiated which traced this potential defect to a single pallet of glass bottles received by Bell’s.
Bell’s does not manufacture its bottles and has been working with its supplier to further protect the safety of its customers.
“We have zero tolerance for any glass defects and while the chances are small that this could come up again, we are doing everything we can to address this situation and making sure all bottles are immediately pulled from store shelves and distributor warehouses,” said Laura Bell, Bell’s Vice President.
