Rettenberg - Beware of these bottles! The Zötler brewery from Rettenberg (Allgäu / Bavaria ) has recalled one of its products *. It would involve the " Zötler Russ'n Half " with the best before date 02/01/2021 , according to a Facebook -Posting.
The danger is rather unusual. Because many recalls * are probably about the fact that a product should not be consumed.

The warning is even listed on katwarn.de.
Call back from a brewery in Bavaria: bottles can burst
"As part of our ongoing internal quality checks, we had to determine that the production batch 'Zötler Russ'n Halbe' with the best-before date 02.01.2021 cannot rule out that the bottles still contain vital yeast cells," says the Facebook Posting. There is a possibility of secondary fermentation, “which can lead to an additional pressure building up in the bottle , which the bottles may not be able to withstand. As a result, they could burst and lead to injuries . "
The brewery is very sorry that they made this mistake "despite the latest technology" and makes it clear that the product itself poses no danger. But from the bottle. If you have a "Zötler Russ'n Halbe" with a best before date on January 2, 2021, you will receive instructions on how to handle it.
