A popular $17 bottle of white wine sold in bottle shops across Australia has been urgently recalled over fears it could cause an allergic reaction.
Australia’s food standards body has advised Pinnacle Drinks is conducting a recall of 750ml bottles of South Island White Mist sauvignon blanc due to the presence of an undeclared allergen.
It warns that the wine may cause a reaction to anyone who has an allergy or intolerance to sulphites.
Sulphites are mainly used as preservatives in some drinks and if ingested by those with an allergy, it can cause symptoms such as wheezing and coughing.
“Consumers who have a sulphites allergy or intolerance should not consume this product and should return the product to the place of purchase for a full refund,” Food Standards Australia states.
The product has been for sale across Australia at Dan Murphy’s and BWS for $17.
Bottles with a “2021 Vintage” marking are included in the recall.
