Pilsner Brewery Withdraws 5L Barrels of Pilsner Urquell with a Consumption Date of March 6, 2019
On Tuesday, Plzensky Prazdroj Brewery reported a bulging in 5-litre Pilsner Urquell barrels with a consumption date of March 6,
Brno, Dec 14 (BD) – The warning concerns only small 5-litre Pilsner Urquell barrels, namely the L9 249 and L9 250 batches, with a consumption date of March 6, 2019. This information is on the top of the barrel (see the title photo).
The yeast got into the barrels during bottling from the air where it is normally present, due to a small technical defect. It is a species that is commonly used in food production and is no risk to human health, reported Jitka Němečková, spokeswoman for Plzensky Prazdroj.
The presence of the yeast may cause the barrels to break (due to deformation or breakage of the package). The yeast’s activity could lead to leakage or spraying of the beer from the barrel.
