The Department of Commerce, Division of Liquor Control (Division) is recalling 1800®-brand tequila “Silver” and “Reposado” in the 1.75 liter bottle due to safety concerns regarding damaged glass bottle stoppers. Customers who bought this product should return it to the Liquor Agency where it was purchased for a refund or exchange.
The Division took immediate action to remove these items from the shelves of its Liquor Agencies. Shipments from the warehouses have also been halted.
Based on the Division’s investigation, in the normal course of transit there was damage to some cases where some bottles appeared undamaged until they were opened and glass fell from the stopper into the bottle. This was not the case with all bottles the Division checked.
The Division is not aware of anyone who has been harmed by a damaged bottle. However, out of an abundance of caution to protect Ohioans, the Division continues its investigation and is requiring the product supplier to correct the problem. This is a problem with the packaging, not the tequila.
