(December 5, 2012)--A voluntary recall of an orange Home Depot mug has been issued because the rim can spark if heated in a microwave.
The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission says consumers are encouraged to stop using the product, which has the words “The Home Depot,” “Homer’s All-purpose Bucket” and a cartoon character with a utility bucket on the front. A silver-colored simulated bucket handle is just below the rim.
Also, the date 2012 and the words “© Mr. Christmas” and “Made in China” are on the bottom of the mug.
The mugs were sold for around $5 during the month of October.
Consumers who purchased the mugs can return them to their local stores for a full refund.
