Fire Hazard Prompts Recall of Ceramic Coffee Mug Sold at Target
Illume has initiated a recall for a Valentine's Day item sold exclusively at Target.
The company's recall applies to its Love Today coffee mugs. The mugs were mislabeled as microwave safe. If microwaved, the metallic print on the mug can spark, posing a fire hazard.
The recalled item is a 14 ounce, white ceramic mug with Love Today printed in gold metallic on the outside mug. Microwave Safe and Illume are printed on a removable label on the bottom of the mug.
Consumers could purchase these items at Target stores and online between December 2015 and January 2016 for about $8.
Target has received three reports of mugs sparking during microwaving. No injuries have been reported.
Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled mugs and return them to Target for a full refund. Customers can also contact Illume for return instructions and a full refund.
Owners with questions about this recall can contact Illume at (888) 245-5863 and Target at (800) 440-0680.
