Traces Of Glass Have Been Found In Your Favourite Cheap Australian Wine

Seriously be careful, you probably have one of these in your kitchen.

Warning to all uni students, budget drinkers, and employees of media companies. Warburn Estate have recalled a number of their wines after a packaging fault lead to traces of glass being found in bottles. Any wine recall is big news in Australia, but we feel we need to bring this to your attention because it includes beloved budget wine options like Rumours and Gossip.

If you have any confusion about what to do with glass-tainted wine, the Food Standards Australia and New Zealand website explains: “Consumers should not drink this product and should return the products to the place of purchase for a full refund.” They also point out, “Food products containing glass may cause injury if consumed.”

Jokes aside, there is no doubt that 90 percent of the people reading this have a half drunk bottle of Gossips in their kitchen. So when you get home tonight make sure it’s not one of the following.
