Swedish furniture and home products giant, Ikea, has announced the recall of product after Saudi Arabia issued a warning earlier this month.
In a statement issued on social media, Ikea UAE announced that they were recalling all TROLIGTVIS travel mugs marked 'Made in India'.
Saudi authority had indicated the presence of harmful materials, in the mug, that was harmful for human consumption.

Earlier this month, Ikea Saudi Arabia urged all customers, who have a TROLIGTVIS travel mug marked 'Made in India' to stop using it.
A statement issued by the company said that 'recent test reports showed that the product may migrate levels of chemicals exceeding the prescribed limits. Therefore, IKEA urges customers that have the travel mug to return the product to any IKEA store for a full refund. IKEA takes product safety very seriously. All IKEA product types are continuously tested and shall comply with applicable standards and legislation, as well as IKEA own requirements.'
Ikea recently received test reports showing that the travel mug may migrate levels of Dibutyl phthalate (DBP) exceeding the prescribed limits.
The Swedish home products giant has since many years decided to prohibit all use of phthalates in food contact products and therefore stopped sales of the travel mug during investigation.
The investigation has shown that travel mugs marked 'Made in India' may be affected. 
TROLIGTVIS travel mug has been sold since October 2019.
IKEA urges customers in possession of the travel mug with marking 'Made in India' to return the product to any IKEA store for a full refund. No proof of purchase, such as a receipt, is required.
