Public advised that products manufactured by a Missouri winery pose risk of exploding

(ANKENY) – The Iowa Alcoholic Beverages Division released an advisory bulletin today warning the public that bottles of wines manufactured by a Missouri winery pose the risk of exploding.

The bulletin follows a press release issued by the Missouri Division of Alcohol and Tobacco Control stating that certain products manufactured by Eldon, Missouri-based winery Casa de Loco may pose a danger of exploding and should be immediately secured to prevent injury. Six brands of Casa de Loco wine have been identified as posing a risk of explosion: Applesauced, Bellini Gold, Coming in Hot, Kona Lover Port, OCD and Peachy Thoughts.

“We don’t believe these products have been sold in Iowa, but may have been purchased by Iowans traveling to Missouri,” said Josh Happe, Chief of Regulatory Compliance at Iowa ABD. “Anyone in possession of these products should immediately store them in a safe location should they explode and contact the Missouri Division of Alcohol and Tobacco Control.”

The Missouri Division of Alcohol and Tobacco Control can be reached at (573) 751-2964.

The brands were known to have been sold in the following Missouri locations: Camdenton, Glasgow, Keytesville, Lebanon, Newburg, Osage Beach, Salisbury, St. Joseph, St. Robert, Stoutland, Sunrise Beach, Warsaw and Wright City.  The wines may also have been distributed to consumers at events in other locations.
