Next has recalled three children’s dressing gowns amid over fire safety concerns.

The fashion giant has urged customers immediately stop using the gowns as they don’t meet fire safety rules.

Next has said that anyone who has purchased the robes with the product numbers 355933, 394242, 402567, 799768, 790152, 936100 should stop using them immediately and get in contact with the store as quickly as possible.

A statement from the shop's Irish website reads: Next recalls (355933, 394242, 402567, 790152, 936100, 799768) due to an issue with Irish Safety Standard for Nightwear

Unfortunately, the cotton jersey hood lining used in the initial deliveries of these styles doesn’t meet the stringent flammability requirement set out in the Irish Safety Standard for Nightwear. We would therefore recommend that you immediately stop using them and contact us.

Please call us on 016 968 210 to arrange a collection, or return them to your local store (for a full refund), if this would suit you better. If you have given any of these items as a gift, please ask the recipient to get in touch with Next.

If you purchased the pink spot robe (799768) or grey rabbit robe (790152) after 13/10/2015 (batch code 15/09), they do not need to be returned as the jersey hood lining has been removed and the robes comply with all the relevant safety requirements.

We're very sorry for any disappointment and inconvenience this may cause, but we hope you'll understand that customer safety is a high priority for us.
