The 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 www.trivistadesigns.com for more information on the drinkware recall.
