GETTY/PRIMARKPrimark has recalled thousands of flip flops over cancer fears
Three different designs of flip flops from the store’s Cedar Wood State range are part of the product recall.
The flip flops are believed to contain chrysene, which has been noted to be a carcinogenic risk to humans and can cause cancer, reports Science Direct.
The shoes were taken off the shelves on June 2 after being on sale since January.
Primark has suspended its orders of the flip flops with an investigation pending, and is offering full refunds to customers.Related articles
