John Lewis recalls womenswear over fire risk

John Lewis has recalled a range of women’s tops following reports of a potential flammability risk, The Scotsman reported.

Fat Face, which manufactures the women’s tops and sells them through John Lewis's website, said there was a risk if the garment came in contact with a naked flame.

The clothes that are being recalled are a Yarmouth top and a Cowes sweater.

The company may have contacted customers who have purchased one of the tops via email. If not, they can return the item to the nearest Fat Face or John Lewis shop for a refund.
