Angry Orchard Hard Cider Recalled Due To Possibility of Bursting Bottles
On a warm summer day I love to pop open a nice, cold, refreshing bottle (or two, or three) of Angry Orchard Hard Cider. I was particularly excited to partake in bottles of this delicious brew over the weekend in celebration of International Beer Day, but then I read this, and my day got ruined.
If you have bottles of Angry Orchard Hard Cider in your fridge right now, run there immediately and check the "freshness matters" code on the side of the bottle very carefully. There are certain batches of bottles being recalled due to the risk of bottles bursting or overflowing when opened. According to Angry Orchard the problem is due to re-fermentation, which could cause increased carbonation, and that is a very bad thing.
The affected batches were produced June 15 and June 29, 2015, and were shipped to wholesalers in 22 states: Alabama, Arkansas, Colorado, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kentucky, Louisiana, Michigan, Minnesota, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, New Mexico, North Dakota, Ohio, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, and Wisconsin.
To find out if your bottles are part of the recall go here.
Here's one thing I can promise you; the only thing that will be bursting at the Brews & BBQ event on Saturday, September 5 is your pants button after indulging in tons of cold brew and delicious BBQ. Be a part of the fun, and get your tickets now before they sell out!
See ya'll soon!
