Valentine’s Day-themed mug recalled over fire concerns

A Valentine’s Day-themed coffee mug has been recalled over concerns it could catch fire in microwaves. 

The 14-ounce ceramic coffee mugs, which read, "Love Today," were mislabeled as microwave-safe, according to the Consumer Product Safety Commission.

The metallic print could spark if the mug is put inside a microwave, according to the CPSC.

The CPSC says Target stores, which sell the mug exclusively, have received three reports of mugs sparking during microwaving. However, no injuries have been reported. 

Consumers should stop using the mugs, the CPSC said and return them for a refund. 

The CPSC says approximately 12,300 mugs were sold between December 2015 and January 2016.
