S. Martinelli & Company of Watsonville, California is  recalling certain lots of Martinelli’s 8.4 oz. mini glass bottles of Gold Medal Sparkling Cider, Sparkling Cider Northwest Blend, Sparkling White Grape, and Sparkling Red Grape, due to the possibility of small glass chips at the top of the bottles occurring when opening the bottle, which could possibly enter the beverage. Consumers could potentially be cut or injured if a chip occurs.

Only certain lots of the 8.4 oz. bottles, typically known in the trade as “mini-bottles,” of Martinelli’s Gold Medal Sparkling Cider, Sparkling Cider Northwest Blend, Sparkling White Grape and Sparkling Red Grape are affected by this recall. The recalled products have a “Best Before” date of after March 1, 2018, but before September 12, 2018, on the front label of the bottle. A complete list of the product names, item numbers, “Best Before” dates, UPC codes, and images for the products affected are below.

The company announced this recall after internal testing identified the potential for some bottles to chip when being opened.

No other Martinelli’s beverage or size bottle is impacted. The 750 ml “champagne” and the 10 oz. bottles are not included in this recall.

All recalled products are being removed from store shelves.

Consumers who have purchased the product can return the product to its place of purchase for a full refund. Consumers with questions may contact the company at 1-800-662-1868 at any time, 24 hours a day.
