The Future is Binary – This recall involves the CoravinTM 1000 Wine Access Systems. The system uses a hollow needle to penetrate a wine bottle cork and allow wine to be dispensed without removing the cork.

The system is approximately 23 centimetres tall and has a silver-coloured, metallic tubular body with a detachable black plastic capsule cup attached to the bottom and trigger on the top. A black metal handle is attached at the top of the tube and a black metal, moveable bottle clamp is attached to the front side of the tube. A long, metallic needle protrudes from the underside of the handle.

The Coravin name and logo appears on the front side of the tube. The system comes with a silver-coloured storage base and two argon gas capsules.
