(CPSC news release) The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission this week announced a voluntary recall of approximately 3,700 Homer's All-Purpose Bucket coffee mugs sold at Home Depot in October.

According to the CPSC news release:

The silver-colored simulated bucket handle below the rim can spark when used in a microwave oven, posing a fire hazard.

No injuries have been reported.

The recalled product is an orange ceramic mug about 4.5 inches tall with a large vertical cup handle on the side. The mug 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. The date "2012" and the words "© Mr. Christmas" and "Made in China" are on the underside of the mug.

Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled mug and return it to a Home Depot store for a full refund.
