Sierra Nevada brewery issues recall of select beers

- Sierra Nevada Brewing Co. is voluntarily recalling eight craft beers due a packaging issue that could cause broken glass to fall into the bottles. 

In a statement released Sunday, California-based brewer said they detected a small flaw in a limited number of their 12-ounce bottles that could cause a small piece of glass to break off and possibly fall into the bottle, posing an injury risk. 

The company has not received any reports of injuries from the affected bottles, but decided to initiate the recall for safety reasons.

The recalled beer was sold 36 states, including Minnesota and Wisconsin.
