My husband had a beer with best before date of 31st May 2016 that WAS FULL OF GLASS! Shame we where told it was an ISOLATED incident. Completely different batch to ones recalled maybe its the whole product. Bit of a worry…

This is not the first time it tas happened. Couple of years back i had 2 big pieces in a stubby. Lucky for me they were big enough to feel them going in my mouth and spat them out. Rung CUB and got an appolagy, i b****ed and moaned so they gave me a free carton. Pretty poor effort CUB

Just found out on the web about Carlton dry recall found one piece of glass from the rim of the bottle when I took a mouthful thank you for letting people know
