SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – In a letter on Uintah Brewing’s website, the company says certain 12oz cans have a “foreign yeast” that is compromising the products. Read the letter on their website below.

Friends of Uinta,

We regret to inform you that we are issuing a voluntary recall of select varieties of 12oz. cans and bottles due to the presence of a foreign yeast that could cause a package integrity issue over time and under certain storage conditions. The recall comes after extensive testing by the brewery and external third-party analysis confirmed the presence of the strain of yeast that could cause refermentation in the bottle or can, building up pressure that could cause the packaging to fail. Click here for a full list of brands and packages affected by the recall. 

Since its discovery, we have taken immediate and comprehensive steps to remove any trace of the foreign yeast from any further cross-contamination with its house yeast strains. The original source of the foreign yeast is still under investigation, though it is a naturally occurring strain that is occasionally used for brewing specific styles. There are no food safety risks with the consumption of this beer.

A majority of the beer in question is distributed only in our home state of Utah. Select varieties were shipped out of Utah, however less than 10% of all affected beer has made it to retail shelves. Our wholesaler partners have received instructions from the brewery to cease distribution and destroy all cases of beer on this list.

We take quality and safety very seriously at Uinta, so we are issuing this voluntary recall out of an abundance of caution. If you are in possession of a 6- or 12-pack included in the recall, we are offering a refund of your purchase. Click on the red button above and fill out the form completely; if you have it, include a photograph of your receipt, along with a photograph of the Best Beforedate printed on the outer packaging. A member of our team will review your request and confirm within three days; once confirmed, you should receive your refund within two-to-four weeks. Please wait to receive confirmation of your refund eligibility before safely disposing of the beer by enclosing the package in a bag and placing in a trash container. Only brands and packages included in the list below are eligible for the refund; no other beers were affected.

If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to reach out to recall@uintabrewing.com or call us at (801) 467-0909 during regular business hours. We sincerely appreciate your cooperation, understanding and support.
