Did you buy one of these?
The Food Safety Authority of Ireland has issued a recall of an IKEA travel mug due to a high amount of chemicals found in the product.
The product in question is called the Troligtvis travel mug and “elevated” levels of Dibutyl phthalate were found within it.
You can identify them by the following:
“Troligtvis Travel Mug, Beige; article number, 504.124.47; marked ‘Made in India.’
“Troligtvis Travel Mug, Blue; article number: 504.269.20; marked ‘Made in India.’
The FSAI said:
“IKEA is recalling Troligtvis Travel Mugs listed above due to migration of elevated levels of dibutyl phthalate (DBP). Point-of-sale recall notices will be displayed in stores. The implicated mugs were sold between October 2019 and January 2020. The recall does not affect the Troligtvis travel mugs marked ‘Made in Italy.’
“Health concerns are not expected as they are associated with chronic, life-time exposure to this substance.”
If you have the travel mug, you are urged not to use it and instead return it to IKEA.
