More than half a million coffee drinking glasses are being recalled after 56 burning and/or cutting injuries, some requiring stitches or surgery.

The United States Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) issued the recall of more than 580,000 units of 16-ounce glass coffee mugs sold by a Brooklyn, New York-based glassware brand called JoyJolt on June 20. JoyJolt is owned by a Brooklyn-based import company named MM Products, Inc.

The single-wall glass mugs were sold in sets of six on Amazon and through JoyJolt’s website, with the model number JG10242, under the name JoyJolt Drinkware Declan Single-Wall Glass Coffee Mugs. The glasses were manufactured in China.

According to JoyJolt’s own recall and the CPSC notice, the glasses are known to break or crack at the base when coming into contact with hot liquids, such as coffee. More than 100 incidents of breaking — resulting in more than 50 incidents of burns, lacerations or other injuries — have been reported. Seven injuries have required professional medical attention, according to JoyJolt.

The glasses were sold between September of 2019 through May of 2022. JoyJolt’s recall announcement, including information on refunds, is available here.

According to the JoyJolt website, the glassware brand was founded in 2014 by brothers Martin and Joel Mittelman after they “embarked on a mission to find high-quality, contemporary shot glasses at an affordable price,” yet “couldn’t find what they were looking for.”

The company maintains an Amazon page featuring a broad range of home-focused glassware for various drinking and storage applications.
