Additional information:
The US Consumer Product Safety Commission (“CPSC”) reports this recall involves four styles of “Cheeky” six-ounce Ceramic Teacups.

The Teacups have floral motifs with gold painted accents and have four “cheeky” phrases, such as “booze” and “more whiskey please”, painted on the inside or outside rim of the cup. The phrases, “Dishwasher Safe”, “Microwave Safe” and “Made in China” are printed on the bottom of the cup.

Please consult the photograph above for details of the product’s packaging, design and retail presentation. Additional designs of the recalled products are pictured on the Web site above.

According to the CPSC, the Teacups are mislabeled as “microwave safe”. If microwaved, however, the gold paint accents on the Teacups can spark, posing a fire hazard.

Urban Outfitters has received one report of a Teacups sparking during microwaving. No injuries have been reported. Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled Teacups and contact Urban Outfitters for instructions on returning the product for a refund.

If you believe you have purchased or have in your possession any of the recalled Teacups, please do not use them. Instead, kindly return the product to the store where you purchased it for a full refund.

Please note: this is a joint recall from the US Consumer Product Safety Commission (“CPSC”) and Health Canada (“HCSC”).
