The system can cause wine bottles to break during pressurization, posing a risk of lacerations, the company and U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission said.
Coravin has received 13 reports of bottles breaking. In one incident, a bottle broke into four pieces and caused two chipped teeth and a laceration that required stitches. In four others, the bottles cracked and leaked. In eight cases, bottles broke into two pieces.
This recall involves all Coravin 1000 wine access systems. The system uses a hollow needle to penetrate a wine bottle cork and allow wine to be dispensed without removing the cork.
