As the old saying goes, if you can’t stand the heat, you need to get out of the kitchen!

Around 220,000 LYDA jumbo coffee/tea cups have been recalled worldwide (11,000 in the US) because of problems holding hot drinks, according to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC).

Why the product is being recalled: The cups can break when hot liquid is poured into them, posing a burn hazard.

Description: The 20-ounce cups are four inches tall and are white with a pink rose and green leaves.  Printed on the bottom of the cup is the following information:  Model number 302.033.7; Supplier number 10866; the IKEA logo; the words “IKEA of Sweden Design and Quality,” and “Made in Thailand.”

Where it was sold: The cups were sold exclusively at IKEA stores nationwide and on the firm’s website at www.ikea-usa.com from August 2012 through April 2013 for about $5.

Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled LYDA jumbo cups and return them to any IKEA store for a full refund.
