Stella in bottle recall

03 December, 2010

AB-InBev UK has recalled some batches of Stella Artois in 25cl bottles because they might contain small pieces of glass.

The move comes a little over two weeks after the company was forced to withdraw batches of 30cl bottles of Budweiser, and a month after rival Carlsberg UK issued a recall on some bottles of Tuborg.

The Stella recall is on 10-packs with the batch codes L0219MZ, L0272MZ, L0288MY, L0308MY, L0309MY and L0309MZ, according to a product recall notice issued by the Food Standards Agency.

Notices are being displayed in stores explaining the reason for the recall, and consumers are being advised to return purchases to shops for a refund.

No other Stella Artois products are known to be affected.
