Glass fragments prompt wine recalls from Dutch supermarkets
Two different suppliers have issued recalls of wine in the past four days on reports of glass fragments in sealed bottles. The recalls potentially affects customers of ten different grocery stores across the Netherlands. Winery Leroy Chevalier issued a recall of the Comté Tolosan Moelleux blanc 2014 with a lot number of L3054AA. The 750-milliliter bottles of wine were sold by Lidl, and may also be returned there. A receipt is not needed to recover the full purchase price of the wine, Lidl said in a statement on Monday.. The wrong bottles were used in the process of filling the wine, a press releases stated. "As a result, the possibility exists that there are glass splinters in the product," it said. There is a potential risk of injury if the wine is consumed, the winery cautioned. Last week, bottles of the Les Chais Reunis Graves Superieures white wine were also recalled for the possibility of glass fragments inside. It concerns bottles marked with the code L521601A4, which were sold at Boni, DEEN, Dekamarkt, Dirk van der Broek, Jan Linders, MCD, PLUS, Poiesz and SPAR. The lot number on this wine may be found around the bottles neck. "Because these are very small particles, according to experts, there is no proven danger to public health. But as an extra precaution, it was decided to recall the product back," a press release issued last Friday stated.
