Penneys has today recalled a range of cushions sold, saying they are a fire hazard.

The cushions in question were sold between June 2017 and Feb 2018 in the Republic of Ireland.

A spokesperson for the company said: "Primark Ltd., trading as Penneys in the Republic of Ireland, is carrying out a voluntary recall of a wide range of cushions from the Irish market.

"The safety concern is that the cushion’s filling, if placed under prolonged exposure to an ignition source, may pose a flammability risk.
