Angry Orchard Cider Company announced that it is recalling select 12-pack and 6-pack cases of its hard apple cider. 

According to the FDA, the precautionary actions come after the company received concern from customers who had experienced bottles overflowing when opened. 

The company stated it determined the affected cider is limited to two batches, produced on June 15 and June 29. 

Angry Orchard is voluntarily recalling the cases due to concerns that cider from these production runs appear to be showing signs of re-fermentation in the bottle resulting in increased carbonation levels, said reports. 

In some instances, bottles may overflow when opened or burst under increased pressure. 

The FDA stated that impacted cases of the cider were shipped to wholesalers in 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 determine whether a bottle of Angry Orchard Crisp Apple Hard Cider has been impacted:

  • For a case or 12-pack: Look for the "Freshness Matters" code printed on the top or side panel of the case or 12-pack (image below). 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: Locate the inkjet code printed directly on the glass, on the "shoulder" of the bottle just below the neck label. If that code falls within the ranges of C16650001 through C16650530 or C18050001 through C18050415, that cider may have been impacted.

Consumers should handle with extreme care and dispose of the product immediately in an outside container, stated the company. 

To date, no illnesses or injuries have been reported. 

Anyone with questions is asked to call 1-800-362-7110.
