Solar eclipse glasses recalled by Dutch Brothers Coffee


Solar eclipse glasses recalled by Dutch Brothers Coffee

The Dutch Bros Coffee chain, which is based primarily on the West Coast, is recalling the free eclipse glasses it had been giving away to customers after discovering they may not be safe for viewing Monday's solar eclipse.

It's the latest in a series of recalls for eclipse glasses. 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. And, if you simply can't find glasses before the eclipse, don't worry - you can view the event safely using a pinhole camera, leaves, or even your fist.

A coffee company has issued a recall notice of all of its eclipse glasses. "We apologize for your inconvenience".

The society says the only safe eclipse glasses are those that come from reputable manufacturers and dealers. The organization has a list it keeps updated. Another wrote: "Pisses me off getting up at 4 in morning waiting in line to get these for my kids and they are unsafe thank you for the warning but this was all we had to watch it now we cant". If you look through and the sun is too bright, out of focus or surrounded by a murky haze, or if you can see things like ordinary household lights, the glasses aren't safe.
