Boston Beer Co., the Boston brewer of Samuel Adams craft beers, said it is recalling an undetermined amount of beer because of defective bottles that may contain glass particles. 

The company said the defective bottles came from a glass company that provides Boston Beer with about a quarter of its glass bottles. The “small grains or bits of glass” were discovered during a quality control operation at the firm’s Cincinnati brewery, Boston Beer said. The problem was confirmed Friday, and traced to bottles coming from a single manufacturing plant. 

Only Samuel Adams beers in 12-ounce brown glass bottles are involved in the recall. Potentially dangerous bottles are embossed around the bottom with the code N35 followed by OI.
