Several Molson Coors products have been pulled from store shelves after customers complained about the sliminess of their cans of Coors Light and Keystone Light. There has been no recall of either the Coors Light or the Keystone Light and there are no food-safety issues with either beer, according to an email from a Molson Coors spokesman, but he goes on to say “we chose to work with our distributors and retailers to voluntarily withdraw the affected packs from the market.
” A recall is nothing more than the act of removing a product from circulation. In the vast majority of cases, consumers choose to have their food or product voluntarily recalled. There is no food safety concern, but the impacted product does not satisfy our quality standards,” the email stated.
“The Grossest Consistency.
It was “the grossest consistency I could imagine” when aaw1124 tweeted about his Coors Light. Gelatinous and thick in consistency. This is the first time I’ve ever seen or tasted something like it.”
On one canning line at our Trenton facility that only makes tall 12-ounce cans, there was a quality issue,” a spokesperson for Molson Coors stated. Since the issue has been fixed, only a small fraction of cans produced on the line were affected.
Molson Coors Refused.
The spokesman for Molson Coors refused to identify the “limited number of states” where the recalled beer was distributed (although the company did say Florida was in the clear). A major St. Louis supermarket chain has declared that it will no longer sell Coors Light 12-ounce cans in packs of 12, 24, and 30 and Keystone Light 12-ounce cans in packs of 15 and 24.
KTVI reports that St. Louis, Mo. (KTVI) – The most popular beers from Molson Coors are being voluntarily recalled. A quality problem with certain of Dierberg’s Markets’ Coors Light and Keystone Light beers produced in Trenton, Ohio, was reported to the brewer and announced on the company’s website, according to the notice.
To avoid “disappointing consumers,” the beer is being taken off the shelf. Despite the product’s gooey look in social media videos, the brewer claims that it poses no food safety hazards.
The Liquid in Coors Light Cans.
After videos and comments on social media claiming that the liquid in Coors Light cans is “thick and gelatinous,” the company has responded. “I opened a Coors Light tonight, the mountains were blue, and it was the grossest consistency I could imagine,” one Twitter user wrote. Gelatinous and thick in consistency. This is the first time I’ve ever seen or tasted something like it.”
The following items have been withdrawn from Dierbergs Markets’ shelves:
- UPC: 00-71990-00048 for 12 cans of Coors Light, 12 oz.

Recalls of Coors Light.
“There have been no recalls of Coors Light or Keystone Light, and there are no food safety issues relating to either beer,” a Molson Coors representative told Nexstar. Only one of our breweries, which sells these two beers to a tiny number of states, recently discovered a problem with only one canning line.
The affected product is safe to eat, however, it does not match our quality standards. Consequently, we collaborated with our distributors and merchants to remove impacted packets from the market voluntarily. Our quality hotline can be reached at 1-800-645-5376 if you have any questions.” As of this writing, the names of other stores that had to remove Coors Light and Keystone Light from their shelves were unavailable.
