Primark has announced it is recalling three types of men's Cedar Wood flip-flops over fears they contain cancer-causing chemicals. The flip-flops affected are thought to possibly contain a chemical called chrysene, a carcinogenic risk to humans.
The flip-flops have been on sale from Jan. 4 until June 2 and Primark have since halted factory orders whilst an investigation is ongoing. A Primark spokesperson commented on the recall, saying "it has come to our attention that the footwear product detailed above does not meet the Primark usual high standards for chemical compliance. "
