June 17, 2011

Consumers who have any Bacardi MARTINI Asti Sparkling Wine in 1.5 liter bottles at home are being urged to take heed of a voluntary recall announced yesterday by Bacardi U.S.A., Inc., the Department of Consumer Protection advised today.

Bacardi is voluntarily recalling a limited amount of MARTINI Asti Sparkling Wine 1.5 liter bottles nationally, including Connecticut, based on confirmed reports that some MARTINI Asti Sparkling Wine 1.5 liter products have burst, either in their case or on retail shelves. Several reports of such bursting bottles were confirmed in Connecticut.

“The Department of Consumer Protection Liquor Control Division has been communicating with Bacardi representatives on this issue, and we support the company’s voluntary action to safeguard consumers,” Consumer Protection Commissioner William M. Rubenstein said today. “Retailers and wholesalers are removing the recalled items from sale, but it’s critical that consumers pay close attention and follow the company’s instructions on how to safely handle and return any recalled bottles.”

To date, there have been no reports of consumer injuries from bottles that have burst. However, consumers should not use any unopened 1.5 Liter bottles of Bacardi MARTINI Asti sparkling wine that bear the following Lot Codes:

L10236, L10237, L10238, L10239, L10242, L10243, L10244

L10278, L10279, L10281, L10284, L10285, L10321
