RECALL: Homer's All Purpose Bucket Mugs for Fire Hazard

Mugs sold at Home Depot during October are being recalled.

Consumers should stop using the mugs immediately and return it to a Home Depot store for a full refund.

Umm...how about keeping the mug and keep it out of the microwave? Simple solution.

Agreed, I'm surprised it was recalled. Its pretty clear there is something metallic on it.

In unrelated news, all metal spoons ever manufactured have been recalled because some idiot put them in the microwave.
