Cayman residents urged to return Stella Artois beer following recall

Stella Artois has announced on Wednesday a voluntary recall of select packages containing 330ml bottles of Stella Artois beer.

Cayman Distributors Ltd is working actively with all of its trade customers to remove all potentially-affected packages from the market.

Consumers who have purchased 330ml bottles of Stella Artois beer marked with the dates listed below can return the bottles to the Liquor Outlet on Eastern Avenue, Big Daddy’s in Cayman Brac or Hungry Iguana in Little Cayman, for replacement product before September 1st 2018.

The Belgian beer brand, owned by Anheuser-Busch InBev, said the recall covers less than 1% of its glass bottles sold in North America, however it made the decision to voluntarily recall certain packages as a precautionary measure to ensure the safety of global consumers.

"The safety of our consumers is our top priority. While the number of potentially-affected glass bottles is very small, we are recalling these Stella Artois packages as a precautionary measure," said Stella Artois global brand vice president Christina Choi in a statement.

This recall applies to selected glass bottles of Stella Artois whether in 24-pack cases, 6-packs or loose bottles and does not affect other Stella Artois packaging formats, such as cans or draft kegs, or bottles with any expiry dates other than those listed below.

Consumers can get more information on the recall and a list of the production codes of affected bottles on the company’s website: or by contacting Cayman Distributors at
