Product description

This recall involves Michaels private brand Celebrate It™ ceramic travel mugs with a silicone lid. The mugs measure about 6.5 inches tall and hold about 16 ounces of liquid. The travel mugs have four designs:

  • Motherhood the greatest adventure (lime green lid)
  • MOM (lime green lid)
  • Blue floral (turquoise lid)
  • Pink floral (pink lid)

Only ceramic mugs with SKU number 508992 and UPC code 886946619458 printed on a label on the bottom of the mugs are included in the recall.

Hazard identified

The mug's lid does not fit securely and can cause liquids to leak from the bottom of the lid when tilted, posing a burn hazard. Also, the mug does not have a silicone hand wrap so the consumer could burn their hand on the side walls of the mug.

As of May 17, 2017, the company has received one report of a lid leaking with no report of injury in Canada. In the United States, the company has received no reports of incidents or injuries.
