Monogrammed Retail Mugs Recalled

Products Made In China

Monogrammed Retail Mugs RecalledThe Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) announced last week that it has recalled approximately 10,000 ceramic mugs that were sold in Kirkland’s stores because the items can spark and pose a fire hazard if used in microwaves. The products were manufactured in China and imported by non-ASI-listed Tri-Vista Designs Inc. of Deer, Arkansas.

The recall involves 16-ounce white ceramic beverage mugs with metallic gold accents. A monogram letter A, B, C, D, E, G, H, J, K, L, M, R, S or T is printed in gold on the mug. The items, which retailed for $6.99, were sold nationwide in Kirkland’s stores between March and May of this year.

The CPSC said Tri-Vista Designs has received one report of a mug that began to spark while in a microwave, but no injuries have been reported. “Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled mugs in the microwave and return them to any Kirkland’s store for a full refund,” the CPSC wrote in its recall notice.

Consumers were also encouraged to visit Tri-Vista Design’s website at for more information on the drinkware recall.
