Travel mugs recalled

The Journal Gazette

Boston Warehouse Trading Corp. of Norwood, Massachusetts, is recalling about 2,400 holiday travel mugs with lids sold exclusively at Meijer stores, the Consumer Product Safety Commission has announced.

The mugs are mislabeled as microwave-safe, but are not, the commission said. If microwaved, the metallic print on the mug can spark, posing a fire hazard.

The mugs have a decal with “Let it Snow” or “Merry and Bright” in gold metallic lettering. The bottom portion of the mugs is red or green and the top portion is white. The lids are black. They measure 7 inches tall. “Microwave safe” is written on the backstamp under the glaze and on the wrap band.

Boston Warehouse Trading has received one report of sparks when a consumer used the mug in a microwave. No injuries have been reported.

The mugs were sold exclusively at Meijer stores nationwide from October 2019 through November 2019 for about $10.

Consumers should stop using the mugs and return them to Meijer for a full refund or contact Boston Warehouse Trading. It can be reached toll-free at 888-923-2982 from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. weekdays, email customer.service@bwtc.com or online at www.bwtc.com and click on Recall at the top of the page.
