Angry Orchard Crisp Apple Hard Cider recalled due to possible bursting bottles
Angry Orchard Cider Company has identified two batches of Angry Orchard Crisp Apple Hard Cider that appear to be showing signs of re-fermentation in the bottle which they want to voluntarily recall. This re-fermentation could result in increased carbonation levels, and in some instances, bottles may overflow when opened or burst under increased pressure. The cider poses no health risk.
To identify affected product: For case or 12-pack: look for the “freshness matters” code printed on the top or side panel. If that code begins with “June 2016 1665c” and is immediately followed by 4 digits between the range of 0001 through 0700 or “June 2016 1805c” and is immediately followed by 4 digits between 0001 through 0545.
For an individual bottles (please use extreme care when handling): look for the inkjet code printed directly on the glass on the “shoulder” of the bottle just below the neck label. If that code begins with “c1665″ immediately followed by 4 digits between 0001 through 0530 or “c1805″ immediately followed by 4 digits between 0001 through 0415.
If you have any bottles of this cider, please use extreme care and dispose of the product right away in an outside container. Then contact Angry Orchard for a full refund using their “Contact Us” form.
