I don't know, but there's an easy way to deal with the problem: don't use a wine thief.
I got a 30 liter fermentation bucket with a spigot. I put my graduated cylinder below the spigot and draw a 100ml sample, then drop my hydrometer in that. Record the gravity and then drink the sample!
No reason whatsoever to transfer to secondary, if you do secondary, until final gravity is reached in the primary. And after final gravity is reached, no reason to be drawing samples anyway.
Get yourself a bucket with a spigot. They cost like 15 bucks. Far less than the cost of one failed batch.
