December Recall Roundup: Sparking Mugs And Plummeting Parents

Reading through this month’s recalls, you may have an interesting question. “Consumerist, why is a mug a fire hazard?” you’re probably asking. That’s a good question. It’s because it apparently didn’t occur to the mug designers that people might want to microwave it, and that silver-colored bucket handle is metallic enough to cause spectacular sparks when zapped. In this months’ recall roundup, you’ll find flaming fireplaces, non-edible magnets, and lead paint on kids’ clothing. [More]

Recall Roundup: Fire In The Fish Tank Edition

Recall Roundup: Fire In The Fish Tank Edition
