Urban Outfitters Recalls Teacups Due to Fire Hazard

Urban Outfitters “Cheeky” teacups are mislabeled as microwave safe. If microwaved, the gold paint accents on the teacups can spark, posing a fire hazard.  The consumers should immediately stop using the recalled teacups and contact Urban Outfitters for instructions on returning the product for a refund.

The consumer should contact Urban Outfitters at (800) 282-2200 anytime, or online at www.urbanoutfitters.com<http://www.urbanoutfitters.com> and click on «Cheeky Teacup Voluntary Recall» for more information.

This recall involves four styles of «Cheeky» six-ounce ceramic teacups.  The cups 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. «Dishwasher Safe,» «Microwave Safe» and «Made in China» are printed on the bottom of the cup.


Urban Outfitters has received one report of a teacup sparking during microwaving. No injuries have been reported.

The product was sold exclusively at Urban Outfitters stores nationwide and online at UrbanOutfitters.com from August 2014 through January 2015 for about $16.
