According to the CPSC news release:
The silver-colored simulated bucket handle below the rim can spark when used in a microwave oven, posing a fire hazard.
No injuries have been reported.
The recalled product is an orange ceramic mug about 4.5 inches tall with a large vertical cup handle on the side. The mug has the words "The Home Depot," "Homer's All-purpose Bucket" and a cartoon character with a utility bucket on the front. A silver-colored simulated bucket handle is just below the rim. The date "2012" and the words "© Mr. Christmas" and "Made in China" are on the underside of the mug.
