A national voluntary recall of three 1800 Tequila products has been issued because of the potential for glass particles inside the bottles.
The bottles affected are 1.75-liter bottles of 1800 Tequila Coconut, 1800 Tequila Silver and 1800 Tequila Reposado.
Agavera Camiches, S.A. de C.V, the brand owner of 1800 Tequila, and by Proximo Spirits, the importer of the product, issued the voluntary recall after the owner of the brand learned of potential damage to the bottles’ glass stoppers during transportation and handling.
There have been no reports of consumers being injured, but consumers who have affected product should not consume it nor allow others to consume it.
The state Department of Consumer Protection is releasing the news to urge consumers who have purchased the bottles that could be affected.
“The Department of Consumer Protection is communicating with Connecticut wholesalers who distribute the products to our liquor retailers, and we support the companies’ decision to voluntarily recall the items to safeguard consumers,” Commissioner William M. Rubenstein said in a release. “While wholesalers and retailers are removing the recalled items from sale, consumers who already have these products at home can seek and receive a refund from the brand owner,” he said.
This recall is limited to the 1.75 liter sizes of 1800 Tequila Coconut, 1800 Tequila Silver and 1800 Tequila Reposado All other sizes are not affected and not subject to recall.
