PhotoBoston Warehouse Trading Corp. of Norwood, Mass., is recalling about 2,400 Holiday Travel mugs.

The mugs are mislabeled as microwave safe. If microwaved, the metallic print on the mug can spark, posing a fire hazard.

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

This recall involves Holiday Travel mugs measuring 7 inches tall with black lids and 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 half portion is white.

“Microwave safe” is written on the backstamp under the glaze and on the wrap band.

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

Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled mugs and return them to place of purchase for a full refund or contact Boston Warehouse Trading Corp.
