78 Degrees Distillery recalls its specialty wines over fears of life-threatening allergies: South Australian company pulls its vermouth from Dan Murphy’s shelves
- Recalled specialty wine
- Fear of life-threatening allergy
- The product has been mislabeled
An urgent batch recall of a specialty wine made by a South Australian wine producer has been issued over fears of a life-threatening allergy within the wine.
Three types of wine flavored with herbs and spices made by the Adelaide-based company 78 Degrees Distillery, contains the toxic and unreported substance sulphite.
The wine has been sold at Dan Murphy’s bottle shop in New South Wales, South Australia and Victoria.
An urgent recall has been issued for a popular wine product that has been sold in various bottle and spirits stores in Australia, over fears the wine contains a potentially deadly substance.
The product has also been sold in liquor stores across the country, including the BWS store in South Australia.
The Food Standards Australia and New Zealand alert issued on Wednesday said bottles of Dry, Rosso and Rose Vermouth made at the Adelaide distillery were affected.
Sulfites are found in many foods, but are commonly found in wine. The food additive can be harmful as it can cause asthma attacks.
The mineral can also cause extreme reactions when consumed according to health experts.
Lot codes for affected wines include: 22060 (Dry, Rosso, Rose), 22244 (Rosso), 22333 (Dry, Rosso, Rose).
Consumers who have an allergy or intolerance to sulfites should not consume this product and should return the products to the place of purchase for a full refund.
More to come.
