Asda recall explosive prosecco

23 October 2014

Hold up boozers, Asda are recalling Prosecco because it keeps exploding, going off like a stag do's trousers.

The supermarket's Prosecco Spumante Extra Dry has been withdrawn from sale following complaints that the bottles keeping shattering.

The quite snipular £5.48 Italian wine, which is exclusive to Asda in the UK, is actually described as “a delicious sparkler exploding with zesty lemon”. Not literally, arf!

Basically if you have any of these:  L1402606, L1403271, L1403503, L1403655, L1404044, then get thee back to Asda sharpish.

An anonymous spokesman for Asda said anonymously “We have had a handful of complaints about our Prosecco Spumante Extra Dry bottles shattering,”

“We take this incredibly seriously as our customer and colleague safety is paramount to us, which is why we’ve recalled certain lot numbers of this product as a precaution.”

If you think you may affected, then take your bottle back to Asda and they'll sort you with a refund or something.

    Probably just drunkards drinking them on their way home and dropping them. It's a glass bottle and glass isn't known for its sturdiness. Stop the presses! Glass bottle breaks!

    So they are advising you to transport it to the supermarket, surely much more dangerous. . I'd just drink the bottle then take the label in saying it exploded - give me a refund and good will gesture please.
