Two Florida wineries issue voluntary recall for wine bottles due to glass concerns
CLERMONT/ST. AUGUSTINE, Fla. (FOX 13) - Two Florida wineries are warning customers to check certain bottles of wine, including some sold at Publix locations.
Lakeridge Winery and Vineyards, located in Clermont, and San Sebastian Winery, located in St. Augustine, announced a voluntary recall after learning there may be glass shards inside wine bottles. It only applies to certain date codes of Lakeridge Winery Southern Red, Southern White, and Cabernet Sauvignon, and San Sebastian Winery Vintners Red and Vintners White.
The bottles used by both locations are supplied by a third party, called Seavin Inc. Any consumers with potentially-affected wine would be eligible for reimbursement or replacement.
If purchased at Publix, the Lakeland-based store chain says customers can return the products to any non-Georgia store for a full refund. In Georgia, it's prohibited to return alcohol, but residents in that state can seek a refund or exchange by contacting Seavin Inc. directly at 1-800-476-8463.
