Stepping up to plate, Oakshire Brewing is conducting a voluntary recall of one of two of its latest releases in its Theme From the Bottom series. After social media posts of cans of Theme From the Bottom: Mango Raspberry Cheesecake Smoothie Sour Ale began to bulge, Oakshire Brewing has sent out a press release and email to all online purchasers of this beer to make them aware of this potential and serious issue.
Nine years ago Oakshire Brewing recalled bottles of Hellshire II due to infection and at that time the brewery stepped up to offer refunds to purchasers of these bottles in early 2012. We commend the Eugene brewer for doing the correct thing for both the safety of the consumer and for the brewery’s integrity.
This beer does not meet Oakshire’s quality standards and, as a precaution, we are alerting consumers of the issue. This beer was only sold through our taprooms in 16oz can packages from January 16, 2021 through January 18, 2021 with the majority of the cans sold online via pre-sale. All consumers who purchased this beer have been emailed a copy of this press release. No other Oakshire Brewing beers are affected by this recall.
Consumers: If you have Theme Mango Cheesecake in your possession, please do not open it. Do not attempt to transport or ship it. Do not attempt to return it. And do not remove the cans from the plastic holders. Dispose of the product by following these steps: (i) Before disposing of any cans of Theme Mango Cheesecake, please put on protective gloves and a face shield (or goggles and a mask); (ii) Place all remaining Theme Mango Cheesecake cans in a closed box and place immediately in a secured garbage container or dumpster outside.
Oakshire is proud of its innovative beers and is particularly proud of the Theme From the Bottom series. Unfortunately, in this instance, we missed the target. If you drank Theme Mango Cheesecake prior to reading this release, either in 16oz cans or on draft in one of Oakshire’s two taprooms, there is absolutely no danger and no cause for concern.
If you have any questions regarding this voluntary recall, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or if you would like to speak to us directly, please call Oakshire Brewing at 541-654-5524. If you have Theme Mango Cheesecake in your possession and are disposing of the potentially affected product and would like a refund or credit for a future release, please email your order number to email@example.com.
