A voluntary recall has been issued by a company known for making hard apple cider.

According to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, Angry Orchard Cider Company, LLC of Cincinnati, OH, announced the recall of select cases of Angry Orchard Crisp Apple Hard Cider on Tuesday.

The recall comes after inquiries from consumers that had experienced "broken bottles or bottles overflowing" when opened, according to the FDA. The affected cider is limited to two batches produced on June 15 and June 29, 2015.

The company said cases impacted appeared to be "showing signs of re-fermentation in the bottle, which could result in increased carbonation levels, and in some instances, bottles may overflow when opened or burst under increased pressure."

The beverage poses no health risk if it is consumed. No illnesses or injuries have been reported.

Angry Orchard said they are working with wholesalers and retailers to remove the cases from shelves as soon as possible.

Impacted cider cases were shipped to certain wholesalers in Arkansas and Missouri along with 20 other states.

Here is what to look for on the cases and bottles:

  • 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. 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): 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.

Angry Orchard will issue a full refund for the products impacted. Contact the company on their website or call 1-800-362-7110 for more information.
