About 10,000 ceramic mugs are being recalled following an incident in which one sparked while it was being used in the microwave.

The mugs, sold exclusively at Kirkland's, have metallic monogram lettering that is not safe for microwave use and can result in a fire.

The recall affects 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. A sticker on the bottom of the mug reads, "UPC# 698617673962" and "SKU# 138837."

They were sold at Kirkland's stores nationwide from March 2015 to May 2015 for about $7.

Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled mugs in the microwave, and return them to any Kirkland's store for a full refund.
