• Sierra Nevada Brewing Co.(MILLS RIVER, N.C.) -- Sierra Nevada Brewing Company is recalling some of its 12-ounce bottles of beer over a packaging flaw that could result in a small piece of glass breaking off and falling into the bottle."While we believe this concern impacts roughly 1 in every 10,000 (0.01%) of our bottles packaged during this time, Sierra Nevada has set the standard for quality in the craft brewing industry since 1980 and we have decided to take this precaution to ensure the safety of our consumers," Mike Bennett, the company's chief supply chain officer, said in a statement Sunday. "To date, we have not received any consumer reports of injuries resulting from the potentially affected bottles and we are working with our supplier to determine the root cause of the issue," Bennett added.Sierra Nevada says the flaw was detected in a "very limited number of bottles" following quality inspections at its brewery in Mills River, North Carolina.The recall affects eight brews that were packaged between Dec. 5 and Jan. 13, and purchased in 36 states across the Midwest, the South and East Coast.

  • iStock/Thinkstock(MOSCOW) — A Russian company has unveiled the perfect accessory for a wealthy, religious person looking to curb an Internet addiction. Or something. Gresso's 988, also known as the "Orthodox phone," is covered in gold leaf, with 18-carat gold buttons, and is adorned on the back with an Orthodox cross.What it doesn't have is any smartphone capability, or a camera that can compete with offerings from say, Samsung or Apple.“We wanted to minimize users’ Internet addiction and concentrate on the mobile itself and the real world, not a virtual one,” said Anatoly Sautin, a PR rep for Gresso to the Russian outlet RT.The company also has more luxe options like diamond-inlaid buttons, and a more economical version with less bling, for a little over six grand.
