Tim Hortons Has Recalled Travel MugsJan 25, 2003 Tim Hortons has recalled about 6,500 travel mugs distributed in the United States. The lids on some of the mugs can detach allowing hot liquid to leak, posing a burn hazard to consumers.
Tim Hortons has received 14 reports of the lids detaching while mugs were filled with hot liquid. One consumer reported hot liquid spilling onto his hand and chest.
This recall involves 15-ounce stainless steel travel mugs with a black handle and a black lid. The words "Always Fresh Tim Hortons Coffee" are printed on the mug. The distributor's name, "Thermo- Serv®," is stamped on the bottom. The travel mugs were manufactured in China.
Tim Hortons stores in New York, Michigan, Ohio, West Virginia, Kentucky, Maine and Canada sold the mugs from October 2002 through January 2003 for about $15.
