Dutch Bros has a warning for people who received eclipse glasses from its locations: don't use them.

The company issued a recall this morning saying they were concerned the glasses didn't have the proper certification to view the eclipse safely.   Here is the statement the company released on Facebook:


Valued customers: Today Dutch Bros Coffee handed out eclipse glasses at many of our stands. We are now issuing a full voluntary recall of these glasses. We purchased these glasses after receiving certification of ISO compliance from the manufacturer. Further investigation has led us to question this certification. Your safety is of the utmost importance to us, so we are issuing this voluntary recall.  
If you received a pair of these glasses, DO NOT USE THEM TO VIEW THE ECLIPSE. Please return these glasses to the Dutch Bros Coffee location where you received them for a FREE DRINK of your choice--any drink, any size. We apologize for your inconvenience.
