Mislabeled teacups from Urban Outfitters are being recalled for posing a fire hazard.

The Cheeky teacups are labeled as microwave safe, but the gold paint accents on the teacups can spark when microwaved. The company received one report of a sparking teacup, but no injuries were reported.

This recall involves four styles of Cheeky 6-ounce ceramic teacups. The cups have floral motifs with gold painted accents and have four cheeky phrases, such as booze and more whiskey please, painted on the inside or outside rim of the cup.

They were sold exclusively at Urban Outfitters stores nationwide and online from August 2014 through January 2015 for about $16.

Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled teacups and contact Urban Outfitters for instructions on returning the product for a refund.

Urban Outfitters can be contacted at (800) 282-2200.
