Penneys are recalling thousands of men's flip flops - after discovering they contain high levels of a cancer-causing chemical.

The chain's parent company, Primark, says it is recalling black, blue and khaki sandals from its Cedar Wood State range and offering a full refund to anyone who bought them.

    The product numbers affected are:

  • Khaki - 02387/07, 08, 09

  • Blue - 02387/04, 05, 06

A spokesman confirmed the flip flops contain chrysene - which is commonly used in dark-coloured dyes.
