Primark apologised in February after recalling a Walking Dead t-shirt which some consumers argued was racist
Primark has recalled thousands of men's flip-flops over fears they may contain risky levels of a cancer-causing chemical.
The cause for concern is the presence of a chemical called chrysene, which studies have found to cause cancer. The flip-flops, which were available in three colors - blue, khaki and black - were sold between January 4 and June 2.
A spokesman for the chain confirmed to the BBC that the chemical in question was chrysrene, a common dye for dark colours, but said the levels of the substance would pose a minimal health risk.
"All new orders with this factory have been suspended while we carry out a thorough investigation".
The discount fashion chain said it had come to its attention that the footwear "does not meet the Primark usual high standards for chemical compliance".
