More than half a million JoyJolt brand glass coffee mugs have been recalled after their manufacturer received over 100 reports of the products breaking when filled with hot liquids, leading to multiple users suffering burns or lacerations, according to the Consumer Product Safety Commission. 

MM Products on Thursday recalled 580,000 JoyJolt Declan Single-Wall Glass Coffee Mugs with model number JG10242, which are 16 ounces and were sold as a set of six, according to the recall notice posted by the agency. Consumers are instructed to immediately stop using the recalled item and conduct their maker for a full refund. 

The glasses are clear and have a handle, and their model numbers can be found on their packaging or in the order confirmation. The company said on its website that a number of the mugs broke at the base when exposed to hot liquids.
