The federal Agency for the Safety of the Food Chain (FAVV) warned of glass shards in bottles of red and rosé wine. The agency was alerted to the contamination by the French authorities. The 250-ml bottles are also sold at various chain stores in Belgium.

It concerns small bottles of red and rosé wine 250-ml JP Chenet : vin de pays d'Oc Cabernet Syrah batch numbers L 70927202 and L 70927203; vin de pays d'Oc Cinsault Grenache batch number L 70928203; 250-ml bottles of JP Chenet; and vin de pays des Côtes de Thau medium sweet batch numbers L70926210, 70927201, 70928201 and 70928202.

The glass particles broke off from a hole in the bottom of the bottle and subsequently became mixed with the contents. The bottles were consequently only partially filled if at all. The problem was allegedly attributed to a malfunction during the bottling process.

The FAVV said that no recall will be issued because consumers can clearly see which bottles have been contaminated. The agency does however advise consumers to check whether their bottles are in order.
