      Michaels recalls ceramic travel mugs

      The mug’s lid does not fit securely and can cause liquids to leak

      The Michaels Companies of Irving, Texas, is recalling about 27,000 ceramic travel mugs.

      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. In addition, the mug does not have a silicone hand wrap so consumers could burn their hands on the side walls of the mug.

      The firm has received one report of the lid leaking. No injuries have been reported.

      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)

      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.

      The federal placard contains incorrect tire pressure inflation information

      Forest River is recalling 55 model year 2017 XLR ToyHauler trailers, model XLT26HFS.

      The federal placard incorrectly states that the rear tire pressure should be 50psi, when the tires should actually be inflated to 80psi.

      What to do

      Forest River will notify owners, and dealers will install a corrected federal placard, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin on July 3, 2017.
