Agavera Camichines, S.A. de C.V. , the brand owner of 1800® Tequila along with the Michigan Liquor Control Commission (MLCC), announced a voluntary US nationwide recall of 1800® Tequila 1.75 Liter Silver, Reposado and Coconut packaging due to potential damage during transportation and handling in some cases to the glass stopper.
1800 Tequila in all other sizes (50 ml, 200ml, 375ml, 750 ml and 1 Liter) is not impacted. In addition, 1800 Tequila Anejo, Select Silver (100 Proof) and 1800 Ultimate Margarita products are not impacted.
Although it is believed that the percentage of affected bottles is low, to protect the safety of consumers, the brand owner, Agavera Camichines, S.A. de C.V., has made the decision to voluntarily recall the 1800 Tequila 1.75 Liter packaging as a precautionary measure. There have been no reports of consumer injuries, but the presence of small particles of glass in the bottle could pose a health risk.
“We have become aware of this recall and are doing everything we can to make sure these bottles have been taken off the market,” said Andy Deloney, Chairman of the MLCC. “We are asking that all licensees stop selling this item until a replacement is delivered to you by Great Lakes Wine and Spirits.”
The affected bottles include:
• 1800® Tequila Silver 1.75 Liter
• 1800® Tequila Coconut 1.75 Liter
• 1800® Tequila Reposado 1.75 Liter
