fup10 United Kingdom 26/08/2015 withdrawal of original notification The UK Authority would be content for the withdrawal of the RASFF Notification based on the investigation carried out by the Italian Authority, if they are satisfied that the testing they have undertaken shows there is no issue at supplier level or no further complaint has been received by the bottler. The UK agent (Vinexus) for the supplier also assured that no other complaints of bottles breakages were reported in other Member States. The results taken by The Wine Society also shows that the bottle wouldn't explode spontaneously. The Wine Society has also advised us that new orders placed by them will be filled into heavier bottles similar to the ones used in champagne, which is around 900g and able to withstand minimum of 20 bar pressure. In terms of the Recall Notice issued in the UK, this will still remain as this was issued on a precautionary measure by the UK business in order to make their customers aware of the issue.
