HARRISBURG, Pa. (CBS) — The Pennsylvania Liquor Control Board is notifying the public of a voluntary, partial recall of some bottles of “1800” brand tequila.

LCB spokeswoman Stacey Witalec says the safety concerns involve certain bottles of “1800” Tequila brand 1.75-liter bottles of Silver, Rsposado, and Coconut varieties.

“We were notified by the manufacturer of the product that the decanter, which is also the cork on the product, has glass shards that have come off and have found their way into the actual bottle,” she tells KYW Newsradio.

The agency says the glass stoppers may have been damaged during transportation and handling.  There are no reports of injuries.

Witalec says since this product is a higher-end tequila, the number of affected bottles sold by state stores is relatively low.  She says anyone who purchased bottles affected by the recall may return them to any state store or contact the company for a refund.

1800 Tequila in all other bottle sizes, as well as 1800 Tequila Anejo, Select Silver, and 1800 Ultimate Margarita are not impacted.
 Customers are encouraged to check to see if they have affected product by comparing the first nine digits of the 13-digit Lot Code on the side of the bottle against the list of affected product codes.

Please see list of affected Lot Codes below.
