The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, in cooperation with Carlisle FoodService Products, of Oklahoma City, Okla., announced a voluntary recall of cups and mugs. Consumers should stop using recalled products immediately unless otherwise instructed. It is illegal to resell or attempt to resell a recalled consumer product.
The cups and mugs can break when exposed to hot liquids, posing a burn hazard to consumers. Carlisle has received three reports of cups and mugs breaking. No injuries were reported.
The nine models of Carlisle cups and mugs were sold in a variety of sizes from 7-ounce to 16-ounce, and in the following colors: white, green, red, brown, black, ocean blue, sand, honey yellow, bone and sunset orange. They are approximately two to three inches tall and are made of melamine.
The name "Carlisle OKC, OK" and model number are imprinted on the bottom, along with "Made in China" and "NSF." Some may also include the model name and size. The items are sold nationally through distributor outlets and online, including food service companies, broadliners and equipment supply distributors. The mugs were sold between January 2011 and January 2012 for between $4 and $10 each.
Consumers should stop using the mugs immediately and return them to Carlisle for credit toward a future purchase of Carlisle FoodService Products merchandise. Carlisle will provide instructions for free return shipping.
