Stella Artois is voluntarily recalling their 11.2-ounce beer bottles across the U.S. and Canada due to a possible glass contamination. 

The company says that the affected bottles were manufactured by a third-party company.  The recall affects Stella Artois six-packs, 12-packs, 24-packs, “Best of Belgium” multi-packs (Sold in the U.S. and Canada), Stella Artois Legere six-packs and 12-packs (Sold in the U.S.)

Stella, owned by Anheuser-Busch, believes that less than 1% of bottles will ultimately be affected; but out of precaution for their consumers, they decided to recall all potential bottles.
