Pa. Liquor Control Board warns of exploding prosecco

Some Pennsylvania sparkling-wine buyers should get rid of their beverages before they explode.

The Pennsylvania Liquor Control Board is warning consumers who purchased Indigenous Selections Prosecco Brut 2013 that several full bottles have exploded spontaneously at state Fine Wine & Good Spirits stores.

People who bought that wine -- which was featured as a $12.99 chairman's selection starting in early June -- should dispose of it. They should not return the bottles.

The board said all bottles have been removed from the state stores.
