YETI issues recall for a popular travel mug

The brand has recalled 15,000 units of its Rambler 20-oz. Travel Mug with Stronghold Lid.

YETI's popular Rambler 20-oz. Travel Mug poses a burn risk due to a faulty lid, the company said this week.

On Wednesday, YETI issued a voluntary recall of its Rambler 20-oz. Travel Mug with Stronghold Lid, citing two reports of the mug's magnetic slider "being ejected after being sealed with hot liquid." The products were sold nationwide in October 2020 for about $35. No injuries have been reported, the company confirmed.

To find out if your product is affected, check the date code on the bottom of the mug.
