(WJBK) - Angry Orchard is recalling two batches of its Crisp Apple, saying the batches appear to show signs of refermentation in the bottle.
Refermentation in the bottle can lead to increased carbonation levels in the cider, and in some instances, bottles may overflow when opened or burst under increased pressure, especially if they have not been stored in a cooler or fridge.
Angry Orchard says there's no health risk, but that the batches just don't meet the "high quality standards".
To identify if you have Angry Orchard Crisp Apple that might be impacted:
For a 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, those bottles may have been impacted.
For an individual bottle (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, that cider may have been impacted.
If you have this affected product, you're asked to throw it away and contact Angry Orchard for a refund.
