The CPSC said since the mugs can break, they pose a burn or laceration hazard.

The company that sells the mugs, Hit Promotional Products, has received 10 reports of the mugs cracking or breaking when holding hot liquids. No injuries have been reported.

The mugs were provided as promotional products at meetings or events nationwide from October 2018 through September 2019.
