One of the largest craft breweries in the country is recalling some of its beer because small pieces of glass could break off into the bottle.

Sierra Nevada announced the voluntary recall Sunday, saying the packaging flaw affects eight different types of its beers that were sold in 36 states, including Minnesota, Wisconsin and Iowa.

The brewery believes the flaw affects one in every 10,000 bottles (that's about 0.01 percent), but because the brewery has "set the standard for quality in the craft brewing industry," they decided to take precaution and recall the beers, Mike Bennett, the brewery's chief supply chain officer, said in a statement. He added that no injuries have been reported.

The beers that are being recalled were brewed and packaged at the California-based brewery's North Carolina facility, so the packaging date on the bottle will include an "M" for Mills River – not a "C." Here's a list:

  • Pale Ale 12-ounce bottles that were sold in six-, 12- and 24-packs. They have a packaged date of Dec. 5, 2016 through Jan. 8, 2017.
  • Beer Camp Golden IPA 12-ounce bottles that were sold in six- and 12-packs. They were packaged between Dec. 5, 2016 and Jan. 13, 2017.
  • Sidecar Orange Pale Ale 12-ounce bottles sold in six- and 12-packs. They were packed between Dec. 5, 2016 and Jan. 13, 2017.
  • Torpedo Extra IPA 12-ounce bottles sold in six- and 12-packs. They were packaged between Dec. 5, 2016 and Jan. 13, 2017.
  • Tropical Torpedo 12-ounce bottles sold in six-packs. They were packed between Dec. 5, 2016 and Jan. 13, 2017.
  • Nooner 12-ounce bottles sold in six-packs. They were packed between Dec. 5, 2016 and Jan. 13, 2017.
  • Hop Hunter 12-ounce bottles sold in six- and 12-packs. They were packaged between Dec. 5, 2016 and Jan. 13, 2017.
  • Otra Vez 12-ounce bottles sold in six-packs. They were packaged between Dec. 5, 2016 and Jan. 13, 2017.

If you bought one of the packs of recalled beer, you're advised not to drink it. And Sierra Nevada says it will give you your money back – for more information on that, click here.

The company has stopped distributing the affected beers and it is working with distributors and liquor stores to get the recalled packs off store shelves. Sierra Nevada is also looking into what caused the packaging flaw.

No other beers besides the ones listed above are affected.
