HOUSTON -- Attention beer lovers: A popular beer is being recalled because it may contain small particles of glass.

The Constellation Brands Beer Division issued a voluntary recall Wednesday of select Corona Extra 12-packs and 18-packs with deposit labels in the United States.

Affected bottles have the following production code printed on the carton and bottle: A116A074 and A256C148.

"This recall is very limited in scope, as potentially affected bottles represent less than one-tenth of one percent of Corona Extra 12-ounce clear bottles in the marketplace," the company said in a prepared statement.

No injuries have been reported, the company said. This is the second time in two years the company has issued a recall over glass particles in beer bottles, but they said this recall is much more limited.
