A New Zealand winemaker has recalled three of its products after a fault meant glass fragments could have been dislodged into the bottles upon opening.
3 Stones Wines, based in Marlborough, announced the recall yesterday after the fault was discovered in bottles of selected batches of their Pinot Gris and Sauvignon Blanc wines.
Wines affected are 3 Stones Sauvignon Blanc 2014 (batch code L5148), 3 Stones Pinot Gris 2015 (batch code L5148 and Clearwater Cove Pinot Gris 2015 (batch code L5148 and L5147).
A statement posted of the producers website said: “This is clearly unacceptable and as a precautionary measure and to eliminate the potential risk of public harm we have implemented an immediate and full product recall.
A recall notice was also posted on New Zealand’s food safety website advising consumers to check the batch information on their bottles.
“All products with the batch information listed above should not be consumed”, it said. “Foods containing foreign matter may cause injury. If you have consumed this product and have any concerns about your health, please contact your doctor or seek medical advice.”
The recall does not affect any other 3 Stones or Clearwater Cove products.
Customers have been asked to return the product to their retailer for a full refund or phone 0800 493 2526 with any queries.
