Yeti says that specific lid can pop off and hot liquid can spill out.

There have been two reports of that happening, but no injuries.

Yeti says customers should stop using the mugs and return the lids for a full refund.

“We are issuing a voluntary product recall of the Rambler® 20 oz Travel Mug with Stronghold Lid after learning the lid’s MagSlider™ and mug contents can be expelled if the mug is filled with hot liquid, sealed with the lid, and shaken, which poses an injury hazard,” the company said in a statement.

“The product was available for purchase through yeti.com from October 1, 2020 through October 9, 2020 and about 15,000 units were sold. No injuries have been reported.”

The company’s traditional magnetic lids are not impacted by the recall.
