Square Mile Cider Company (SMCC) is recalling 2,500 cases of “Square Mile Original Hard Apple Cider” and “Square Mile Spur & Vine Hopped Apple Cider.”

- 22 ounce bottles of “Square Mile Original Hard Apple Cider” with the markings “Hand Picked” and “Hand Pressed” on either side of the logo.
- 22 ounce bottles of “Square Mile Spur & Vine Hopped Apple Cider” with the markings “Hand Picked” and “Hand Pressed” on either side of the logo.
The recalled product was sold in retail locations in California, Oregon and Washington.
The company is voluntarily recalling the products due to concerns that cider from the company’s first production run may be refermenting in the bottle, which may cause the bottles to burst under certain circumstances and can lead to potential flavor inconsistencies. Consumers who may have purchased the affected product should dispose of it immediately in an outdoor trash receptacle.
To date, no consumer illnesses or injuries have been reported.
Consumers with questions about the quality of their SMCC products may call the company toll-free at 1-855-371-0895 (8am to 4pm PST) or visit the company’s website at http://squaremilecider.com/contact.
