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.

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.

PRIMARK has recalled thousands of men's flip flops because they contain unsafe quantities of risky chemicals.

The high street chain is offering full refunds to customers.

"We have found levels of a restricted substance in the product in excess of the 1.0 mg/kg requirement", it said on the website.

The company has suspended all new orders from the factory that manufactures the flip-flops while the matter is investigated.

The serial numbers affected are: Khaki 02387/07, 08, 09, Black 02387/01, 02, 03 and Blue 02387/04, 05, 06.

In March, Primark recalled a pair of children's leggings with cats on 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.
