The Cincinnati, Ohio-based company said in a press release that it had received customer complaints about "broken bottles or bottles overflowing when opened." The company said it has conducted testing that shows affected cider is limited to two batches, produced on June 15 and June 29, 2015.


Angry Orchard said that the affected cider could show signs of re-fermentation in the bottle, which could lead to overflowing or the bottle bursting when opened.

"While the impacted cider poses no health risk if consumed, the team at Angry Orchard took this measure to ensure that products available to consumers meet their high quality standards," the company said in the release.
