The glass can break due to improper cooling processes, posing a laceration hazard to consumers.
This recall involves carboys which are glass jugs used for holding and transporting various liquids, including beer, wine, cider and mead made by consumers in their homes. The carboys were sold in three-, five-, six- and six-point-five-gallon sizes. The carboys have the Saxco logo on the bottom of the carboy. The carboys were sold individually or in TrueBrew or HCS equipment kits (for five- and six-gallon carboys).
Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled carboys and return them to the place of purchase for a full refund.
The firm has received 30 reports of incidents of the recalled carboy’s glass breaking. No injuries have been reported.

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) is charged with protecting the public from unreasonable risk of injury or death associated with the use of thousands of types of consumer products. Deaths, injuries, and property damage from consumer product-related incidents cost the nation more than $1 trillion annually. CPSC's work to ensure the safety of consumer products has contributed to a decline in the rate of injuries associated with consumer products over the past 50 years.
Federal law prohibits any person from selling products subject to a Commission ordered recall or a voluntary recall undertaken in consultation with the CPSC.
