Default cork trouble

Has anyone ever gotten a bottle of wine where the cork was pushed out
of the bottle?
It is out about 1/4" and does not appear to have been previously removed.
If anyone has experience or knowledge of this, please let me know.

Sounds like heat. When a bottle is subjected to higher heats, expansion pushes
corks out. Protruding corks are a major warning sign. I'd return immediately,
if possible.
