A recall has been issued for a brand of travel mugs that were sold in IKEA.

The recall affects a number of Troligtvis travel mugs due to elevated levels of a chemical in the products.

It has been discovered that there may be elevated levels of dibutyl phthalate in the implicated travel mugs, which were sold over the last three months.

Beige Troligtvis travel mugs with article number 504.124.47, marked 'Made in India' and blue Troligtvis travel mugs with article number 504.269.20, marked 'Made in India' are affected by the recall.

Travel mugs marked 'Made in Italy' are not affected by this particular recall.

Customers who have been using the implicated travel mugs are assured that health concerns are not anticipated.

The message on the Food Safety Authority of Ireland website reads: "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."
