Bosses are worried the bow attached to the front of the product could become detached and could be dangerous for young children.

Shoppers who have bought the leggings are being urged to send them back for a full refund.

They will not be asked for proof of purchase.

In a statement on the organisation’s website, representatives for the retailer wrote: “Through our on-going due-diligence programme it has come to our attention that the Novelty Cat Legging detailed above does not meet the Primark usual high standards for safety.

“We have found a potential issue with the security of the bow attachment within the product that may become detached and present a potential choking hazard. With the safety of our customers at the forefront of our minds we are inviting you to return this item for a full refund.”

The product was on sale at UK stores from November 8, 2016 until February 22, 2017.
