The article goes on to state the following:
“Ikea is responsible for securing correct and compliant motifs on all our products. We can see that the process has failed regarding the product Björksta world map — we regret this mistake and apologize. We will take the necessary actions and the product is now being phased out from our stores,” an Ikea spokesperson reportedly told the BBC.
