Primark recall men's flip flops over fears of cancer-causing chemical

Discount clothes retail giant Primark has recalled pairs of flip-flop over fears they contain a chemical linked to cancer.

The low-priced fashion chain said the affected footwear, part of its Cedar Wood State range, "does not meet the Primark usual high standards for chemical compliance".

A Primark spokesman told the Guardian the chemical in question was chrysene, which is a regulated chemical commonly used in dark coloured dyes.

Primark, which is owned by Associated British Foods, said the footwear was sold in stores between 4 January and 2 June this year as part of its Cedar Wood State range.

The company has said that it believed the risk to customers is minimal - and Irish shoppers have not been affected.

A "thorough investigation" has now been launched by the shop, which confirmed it had suspended all new orders.
