Florida company Seavin recalled some of its bottled wines after learning they "may contain small grains or bits of glass," the company recall notice states.
The potential problem concerns the 750 ml glass bottles, which Seavin's bottle maker tested recently.
"That testing focused on a manufacturing defect impacting glass bottles utilized by Seavin in certain Lakeridge and San Sebastian production runs," the notice states. "A representative of our bottle manufacturers involved in the investigation of the defective bottles indicated to Seavin that the number of bottles from its plant actually containing pieces of glass is numerically insignificant, and that the risk to the public is extremely small."
But that risk apparently isn't so small that Seavin wanted to roll the dice on a wine drinker getting some internal bleeding with their vino. Thus, the recall.
