IKEA recalls travel mugs due to chemical concerns
Swedish furniture company IKEA has urged customers to stop using Troligtvis travel mug due to fears that the product may exceed the prescribed limits for certain chemicals.
In a statement, an Ikea spokesperson urged customers who own Troligtvis travel mugs marked 'Made in India' to stop using them, and to return the product to any IKEA store for a full refund. No proof of purchase is required.
Ikea recently received test reports showing that the travel mug may have excessive levels of Dibuthyl phthalate (DBP), a chemical commonly used in the production of plastics due to its low toxicity, Yahoo News reported.
Troligtvis travel mugs have been sold in Singapore since August 2019.
