The men's flip flops that are being recalled have been taken off sale and Primark has halted all orders with the factory ahead of an investigation

The alert involves three versions from the Cedar Wood State range in khaki, black and blue - which were on sale until June 2.

The alert involves flip flops from the store's Cedar Wood State range - in khaki, black and blue.

Several media outlets reported that the black, blue and khaki-coloured versions of the flip flops are affected by the recall, on the basis that they might contain risky levels of a chemical called chrysene, which can cause cancer.

The high street chain is now offering full refunds to customers.

In a warning online, the company said the flip flops do not "meet the Primark usual high standards for chemical compliance", adding: "We have found levels of a restricted substance in the product in excess of the 1.0 mg/kg requirement".

"We take the safety of our customers, and the quality of our products very seriously", the spokesperson said.

Primark has recalled thousands of men's flip-flops over fears they may contain unsafe levels of a cancer-causing chemical.

In March, Primark recalled a pair of novelty children's "cat" leggings over fears that a bow attached to them could present a choking hazard.

And in February, Primark pulled a range of The Walking Dead t-shirts after complaints of racism from customers.
