Ceramic Wine Goblets Recalled

An Illinois-based company is recalling ceramic wine goblets sold nationwide because they may contain more leachable lead and cadmium than federal regulations allow. 

Enesco, LLC of Itasca, IL has announced a voluntary recall of 300 of its “Any Wine Will Do” wine goblets because internal product testing revealed levels of leachable lead and cadmium beyond those considered safe by Food and Drug Administration (FDA) guidance.

The ceramic goblets were sold in retail stores in 29 states, including Arizona, California, Colorado, Florida, Hawaii, Iowa, Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, Maryland, Missouri, Michigan, Mississippi, North Carolina, North Dakota, Nebraska, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Oregon, Pennsylvania, South Dakota, Texas, Virginia, Vermont, Washington and Wisconsin.  

According to the company, the product is a white ceramic goblet with the word “wine” painted on the exterior and interior in different colors. The phrases “Any Wine Will Do” and “I Would Like To Apologize In Advance For My Behavior Tonight” are on the front and back in a yellow circle surrounded by black and white checks. 

The goblet is usually on display at retailers but is delivered to these locations in white boxes with a label that contains a picture of the front of the wine goblet, the Our Name is Mud logo, a product description of “Any Wine Goblet,” the SKU # 4026171 and Enesco LLC’s name. 

Consumers who bought the wine goblet should return it to the place it was purchased for a full refund, or contact Enesco at 800-4-ENESCO, etc. 5720 or consumeraffairs@enesco.com for more details on the recall.

    “I would like to apologize in advance for my poisoning you.”
    These are shelf stable products. They easily could have held them until they received their testing results, and THEN release them for sale. Why would they set themselves up to risk a recall situation, when they easily could have avoided it? With fresh produce, it can be dificult to hold the product while awaiting results, because it is decaying the whole time it’s in storage. Not the case with ceramic glasses.
