TJX Recalls Glass Beer Mugs

In cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, TJX has issued a recall for a line of glass beer mugs. The CPSC stated that the glass beer mugs can break if heated or used with hot liquid, posing burn and laceration hazards.

The recall involves 16.9-ounce glass beer mugs, sold exclusively at HomeGoods stores. The mugs have a label attached to the side that reads, “Handmade in Poland.”  A second label on the bottom of the mug has the HomeGoods style number 069386.

About 500 units were sold at HomeGoods stores nationwide from May 2017 through June 2017 for $4.

No injuries have been reported in the U.S., but HomeGoods has received two reports of the glass beer mugs breaking in Canada when heated or used with hot liquids, including one report of a burn injury.

Consumers are instructed to immediately stop heating or using the recalled glass beer mugs with hot liquid and return them to the nearest HomeGoods store for a full refund, the company said.
