Well, here's one simple thing you might not be doing, but should: keeping an eye out for recalls.

Well, it's the thought that counts. Nestle USA is recalling more than 440,000 Starbucks-branded metallic mugs that were sold in gift sets during the 2023 holiday season. The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission has received 12 reports of the mugs overheating or breaking after being microwaved or filled with hot liquid, posing burn and laceration hazards. So far, 10 people have been injured.

  • Where were they sold? Target and Walmart

  • What to do: You can return your mugs to the store where you purchased them for a full refund via cash or gift card, no receipt required. If you're not sure where you purchased them, you can also contact Nestle USA for a full refund.

  • Alternative option: Looking for a mug to keep your drink hot (but not too hot)? Amazon shoppers love these coffee cups with double-wall insulation that are only $8 each.

Best Buy has recalled over 187,000 Insignia Air Fryers and Insignia Air Fryer Ovens (see all the recalled models here). The air fryers can overheat, causing the glass doors to shatter and the handles to melt or break, posing fire and burn hazards. At least six units have caught fire, regulators say.

  • Where were they sold? Best Buy in the U.S. and Canada

  • What to do: Stop using the air fryer or air fryer oven immediately and visit this self-service portal to submit photos of your recalled air fryer, along with the model number and receipt. You'll receive a refund in the form of a check or Best Buy store credit. If you no longer have the receipt, you'll receive the average sale price for the model. Best Buy is not accepting the return of these items in-store.

  • Alternative option: Air fryers are simple to use, and they can make cooking faster, easier and less messy. Here are five reasons why you should get one, according to one enthusiastic Yahoo editor. One of our favorites? The Ninja Foodi Original Dual-Zone air fryer, which has two baskets that can accommodate different dishes.

Attention, sneakerheads: If you purchased one of these display cases for your favorite kicks, you'll want to swap it for a new one. Culture Kings is recalling two models of its Sneaker Basel Double Magnetic Levitation Displays because their magnets can forcefully attract, break, splinter and emit sparks, posing a laceration hazard. The recall involves 4,300 units.

  • Where were they sold? Online at culturekings.com from July 2020 through January 2023

  • What to do: Stop using the display. If the magnets in your case are stuck together, don't attempt to separate them. Reach out to Culture Kings or go to the self-service online portal and follow the instructions to receive a full refund.
