IKEA has pulled the TROLIGTVIS travel mug off the shelves after tests showed chemicals might exceed the "required limits".

The recall - through its website and Trading Standards - affects the punk, beige and blue travel mug, which is marked Made in India.

In a statement from IKEA, it said: "IKEA recently received test reports showing that the travel mug may migrate levels of dibutyl phthalate (DBP) exceeding the recommended limits."

The TROLIGTVIS travel mugs have been sold since October 2019.

Customers are urged to return the mugs to any IKEA store for a full refund. No proof of purchase is required.
