Hold that lime wedge for your Corona, at least until you check the code number on the neck of the bottle.

Constellation Brands, which imports the Mexican beer, is recalling select packages of Corona Extra in the United States because bottles may contain small particles of glass.

The recall covers 12-ounce clear glass bottles in select six-pack, 12-pack and 18-pack packages containing bottles with specific production codes.

A Constellation spokesman said the problem originated with a third-party company that supplies bottles to the brewery in Mexico. She said the problem of tiny glass shards in the beer was estimated to affect only 1 percent of the bottles shipped.

Consumers are asked to call Constellation's hotline for a refund if they purchased bottles with the specific production codes.
