Although no injury reports have been filed yet, Liquor Control in the Ohio Division is concerned about defective 1800 Tequila bottles and has begun warning all consumers of consuming the “Silver” and “Resposado” brands of this tequila due to safety hazards. Liquor Control has confirmed there are troubles with the 1.75 liter bottles of the recalled product and urge consumers to take care when consuming these brands of alcoholic beverages.
Investigations have begun regarding the damage of the tequila bottles, which primarily involves glass falling from the bottle stopper and into the bottle when opened. Despite the fact that no injury reports have been filed at this time, this defect is still extremely dangerous because a consumer may not realize glass shards are broken and falling into the tequila when opening the bottle. It is quite easy for a consumer to fail to realize any glass shards have entered the bottle before consuming the alcohol. Ohio Liquor Control would like to inform customers the problem is specifically with the bottle and the packaging, not the actual tequila.
Those who have recently purchased the tequila product may bring it to the liquor agency for a full refund or exchange for a different product. To avoid further danger, the agency has notified the product supplier to fix the problem.
