WASHINGTON, Jan. 24 (UPI) — Tim Hortons of Oakville, Ontario, Friday recalled 6,500 travel mugs distributed in the United States because the lids can detach, allowing hot liquid to leak.

The company said it has received 14 reports of the lids detaching. One consumer reported hot liquid spilling onto his hand and chest.

The recall involves 15-ounce stainless steel travel mugs with a black handle and a black lid. They were sold by Tim Hortons stores in New York, Michigan, Ohio, West Virginia, Kentucky, Maine and Canada between October and January for about $15.

Consumers are advised to stop using the mugs immediately and return the lids for a replacement, beginning Feb. 1. Consumers will also receive a full refund if they return their mug and lid to a Tim Hortons store.
