Coors Light, Keystone Light Being Recalled…Because of Slime?!
For you connoisseurs of fine American light lagers NOT on TikTok, you may have missed this!
There are videos making the rounds that show cans of Coors Light and Keystone Light, both made by Molson Coors, being poured out. But there’s something strange coming out of those cans! It looks to be beer-colored SLIME!
This one from “Clint Ward” that shows his silver bullet emitting an odd slime-like substance has been viewed over 2.5 million times!

What may or may not be related, Molson Coors announced a voluntary recall of a Coors Light and Keystone Light that were packaged in their Ohio plant, as this announcement from Dierbergs, a Missouri-based supermarket chain, makes clear.
St. Louis, June 8, 2022 – In response to a voluntary product recall by Molson Coors, Dierbergs Markets has removed all lots of the following products from its shelves:
Coors Light 12 Pack 12oz. Cans
Coors Light 18 Pack 12oz. Cans
Coors Light 24 Pack 12oz. Cans
Coors Light 30 Pack 12oz. Cans
Keystone Light 15 Pack 12oz. Cans
Keystone Light 24 Pack 12oz. Cans
Molson Coors recently became aware of a quality issue on certain 12oz can packages of Coors Light and Keystone Light produced solely at the Trenton Brewery (production site 1020). While there are no food safety risks associated with the product, Molson Coors is choosing to withdraw it from the market as to not disappoint consumers. Consumer inquiries should be directed to the Molson Coors quality hotline: 1-800-645-5376. This number is located on each package as well.
Customers may return the affected product to Dierbergs for a full refund.
So far, MC hasn’t addressed the slimy beer videos specifically, so all we can do is assume the recall is because of that. But who knows!
If you’ve seen something like this, let us know!
