After reports of bursting bottles, Trader Joe's recalls ginger beer nationwide

Trader Joe's has issued a precautionary, voluntary recall of its Triple Ginger Brew because the unopened bottles may burst open or shatter.

While no injuries or illnesses have been reported to date (and the company contends that there is no health risk to consuming the drink), Trader Joe's has removed and destroyed all product from store shelves. They became aware of the issue when customers reported their unopened bottles burst open or shattered, and it's too easy to imagine the danger (or complete mess) if your bottles start exploding in your home.

The affected bottles were sold at Trader Joe's stores nationwide and come in a 25.4 FL OZ (750 mL) glass bottle. All bottles that were purchased from Nov. 9, 2015 through Dec. 14, 2015 (SKU 51857) are part of this recall. This includes all codes and all lots.

If you have any of the affected bottles, Trader Joe's advises that you handle them with care and dispose of them immediately into an outside container. The store will also issue a refund to those who purchased the affected product.

If you have any questions about this product or its recall, you can phone Trader Joe's customer relations at 626-599-3817 from 6:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. PST, Monday through Friday. You can also contact them via email.

While it's heartening to know that nobody has been harmed by a bursting Trader Joe's Triple Ginger Brew bottle, it's just as heartening to know the company took action on the reports and dealt with it immediately.
