Popular craft store Michaels is recalling 27,000 ceramic travel mugs due to a burn hazard.

The lid does not fit securely and may cause liquid to leak from the lid's bottom when tilted. In addition, the mug does not include a silicone hand wrap, which may result in consumers burning their hands on the side walls of the mug.

The affected products include the store's private brand Celebrate It ceramic travel mugs with silicone lids. They measure approximately 6.5 inches tall and hold about 16 ounces of liquid. They are sold with the following four designs:

  • Motherhood the greatest adventure, with lime green lid
  • MOM, with lime green lid
  • Blue floral, with turquoise lid
  • Pink floral, with pink lid

Only those mugs with SKU number 508992 and UPC 886946619458 printed on a label on the mugs' bottom are affected by this recall.

The mugs were sold in Michaels stores across the country from March 2017 until April 2017. They were sold for $8.

To date, the company has gotten one report of a lid leaking, but no injuries have been reported. Consumers are urged to stop using the affected mugs immediately and to take them back to any Michaels store for a full refund.

For more information, consumers can reach Michaels at (800) 642-4235.
