Supermarket rosé in France is being recalled due to shards of glass risk

Bottles of rosé wine sold in several French supermarket chains are being recalled after fears were raised that they could contain shards of glass.

The rosé wine bottles being recalled are AOC Cabernet d’Anjou, under the brands Château de Mauny, Club de sommeliers and The U supermarket chain, due to a defect in the way the glass bottles were made.

The bottles in question were sold in supermarkets like the U brand (Hyper U, Super U, Marché U) and Casino, Vival, and Spar.

The government’s recall website RappelConso stated: “Due to the risk of injury/adverse effects from indigestion of this product, as a precautionary measure, people who have products from the lots described are advised not to consume them.” In fact, there is a risk of damage to the mouth and digestive tract. The problem lays, they said, in “A glass thread between the two inner walls of the bottle at the neck. This thread can break and create shards.”

Per Connexion France, the lots recalled are:

  • Château de Mauny, 75cl, sold in U shops throughout France since December 14, 2021. Batch number L21342B, barcode number 3507110014653.
  • Club des Sommeliers, sold between December 13, 2021 and January 5, 2022, in Casino, Vival, and Spar. Batch number L21342C, barcode 3222477571778.
  • U brand, 75cl, sold in U supermarkets across France. Stamped with ‘Les Hauts Buis’. Batch number L21340A, barcode 3256220367608;  and batch  L21344B20A, barcode 3256225037964.

The recall is set to last until 20 January for the U brand, 29 January for the Château de Mauny, and 30 January for the Club de Sommeliers.
