The Pennsylvania Liquor Control Board announced Tuesday that full bottles of wine spontaneously exploded in several of its retail stores.

According to the agency, consumers who bought 750ml bottles of Indigenous Selections Prosecco Brut 2013 should throw them out immediately.

The wine was sold for $12.99 in about 180 stores starting in early June. It's since been removed from store shelves. The liquor control board is working with the vendor to determine the cause of the exploding bottles.

Chairman Joseph E. Brion said the agency has not received any reports from consumers whose bottles exploded. He said consumers will be eligible for refunds.
