Libbey Recalls Bourbon Taster Glasses

In cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, Libbey Glass has issued a recall for its Bourbon Taster Glasses. The CPSC stated that the glasses can break during normal use, posing a laceration hazard.

The recall involves about 229,000 of the company’s 8-ounce Bourbon Taster Glasses, which are made of clear, colorless glass and measure about 3 7/8-inches tall. The glasses have one of three logos laser-etched on the bottom of the glass: “Kentucky Bourbon Trail,” “Kentucky Bourbon Trail Craft Tours” or “SIV.”

The glasses were sold at Libbey outlet stores in Shreveport, Louisiana and Toledo, Ohio, Total Wine stores nationwide, various distillery gift shops, commercial customers for use in restaurants and online from May 2017 through October 2017. The glasses sold for between $20 and $25 for the four-piece set and $6 for the glass sold individually.

No injuries have been reported in the U.S., but Libbey has received two reports of incidents involving 12 glasses breaking.

Consumers are instructed to immediately stop using the recalled glasses and return them to the place of purchase for a full refund. Commercial customers should contact Libbey to arrange for a credit, full refund or replacement, the company said.
