Important Update on Saxco Carboys:
BSG has recently been made aware of a potential quality/safety issue with some of the glass carboy products that BSG wholesales on behalf of their manufacturer, Saxco. These Saxco manufactured products include:
Standard 3 Gallon Glass Carboy
Standard 5 Gallon Glass Carboy
Standard 6 Gallon Glass Carboy
Standard 6.5 Gal Glass Carboy
HCS Premium Homebrewing Kit w/ Glass Carboy (incl EZZZ5285 5-gal)
HCS Premium Winemaking Kit w/ Glass Carboy (incl EZZZ5295 6-gal)
Below is the most recent information BSG has received from Saxco on the matter.
“Based on the results of our testing, we recommend that 100% of your carboy inventory be quarantined. We also recommend that you notify any customers who have received this inventory also quarantine their inventory pending further instructions for disposition. Our team is currently developing a communication plan for disposition, and we will be sharing with you as soon as finalized.”
Based on this information from Saxco, BSG has pulled these products from its sellable inventory available for purchase. This is all of the information that BSG currently possesses on this matter. As BSG is not the manufacturer of these products, it is dependent on Saxco to provide any further updates on the matter or the plan for disposition of these products. BSG will, however, promptly relay further relevant information it receives from Saxco.
Thank you for your attention to this matter.
