McWilliam's Wines has announced a consumer recall of select products across its McWilliam's 2-Litre fortified range.

McWilliam's said the products are being recalled due to the risk that the flagon mouth may be damaged and glass fragments may be present in the product.

"The flagon is made of glass and damaged glass presents a laceration hazard when opening or handling the bottle," the winemaker said.

"Glass fragments could cause injury if ingested. Consumers should not attempt to open these bottles or drink the contents and should immediately return the bottles to the place of purchase for a full cash refund."

The products have been available for sale from March 23 at liquor retail outlets including Dan Murphy's, BWS, Woolworths Liquor, Liquor Land, First Choice, Vintage Cellars and some other independent liquor stores.

The recall affects the following products and lot codes:

L2104-57 and L2081-66 – McWilliam's Cream Tawny 2 Litre
L2104-58 and L2081-41 – McWilliam's Royal Reserve Tawny 2 Litre 
L2103-47 – McWilliam's Cream Apera 2 Litre
L2102-32 – McWilliam's Medium Dry 2 Litre
L2102-33 – McWilliam's Royal Reserve Sweet 2 Litre
L2104-56 – McWilliam's Royal Reserve Muscat 2 Litre
L2102-31 – McWilliam's Royal Reserve Dry 2 Litre

McWilliam's said all 750ml fortified products and other 2-litre fortified wines under other labels or with differing lot codes are not affected and are 100 per cent quality assured.

"We are committed to ensuring all of our products deliver on safety and quality so we thank our customers and consumers in advance for their support in ensuring an efficient and effective recall of this product," the winemaker said.
