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 shops reads: “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 UK Nightwear (Safety) Regulations. We would therefore recommend that you immediately stop using them and contact us.”

The dressing gowns went on sale before October 13 so there are fears that they may have been given as Christmas presents.

The firm allayed the fears of customers as they said that 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.

The robes comply with all the safety requirements, the firm said.
