Vamazing - Live amazing! FLOP: Primark said on Monday that it has recalled a style of men?€?s flip-flops because they contain levels of a cancer-causing chemical called chrysene. The flip-flops, which were available in three colors ?€¡± blue, khaki and black ?€¡± were sold between January 4 and June 2.
?€?We take the safety of our customers and the quality of our products very seriously, which is why we have chosen to recall three men?€?s flip-flops from our Cedar Wood State range,?€? said a company spokesperson. ?€?All new orders with this factory have been suspended while we carry out a thorough investigation. A full refund is being offered to all customers.?€?
The retailer posted the product recall on its web site: ?€?It has come to our attention that the footwear product detailed above does not meet the Primark usual high standards for chemical compliance. We have found levels of a restricted substance in the product in excess of the 1.0 mg/kg requirement.?€?
This is the third product recall this year at Primark. Earlier this year, the retailer removed from its stores novelty cat leggings for children, which posed potential choking hazards ?€¡± along with a range of ?€?The Walking Dead?€? T-shirts that received criticism from customers, who said the tops were racist.
