Carcinogenic substances in flip flops: recall for Primark flip-flops
The textile discount store Primark has launched a recall campaign for flip-flops. During controls it was found that the polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbon (PAH) chrysene contained too much in the flip-flops. This is considered carcinogenic.

Callback for flip-flops started
According to a report from the internet portal "produktwarnung.eu", the textile discount store Primark is calling back flip-flops after checks have shown that the polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbon (PAH) chrysene content is too high. From January 4, 2017 to June 2, 2017, the shoes in question were said to be sold across the EU through Primark stores.

Stop wearing affected articles
The recall affects flip-flops in the color persimmon - 02387/07, 08, 09, in black - 02387/01, 02, 03, in blue - 02387/04, 05, 06 and in dark blue - 02387/10, 11, 12.

It is strongly recommended that you no longer wear flip-flops that you have already bought and bring them back to the branches. The purchase price will be reimbursed according to company information.

Chemicals in flip-flops
"Polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) are carcinogenic, can change the genome and have properties that are harmful to reproduction," the Federal Environment Agency wrote on its website.

Chrysen has also been shown to be carcinogenic in animal experiments.

In the past, studies have shown that flip-flops are often contaminated with chemicals.

Health experts also advise against these flip-flops because they are harmful to the feet. (ad)
