Catalogue retailer Argos has issued another product recall on a number of sofa and chair products due to further fire risks.

Argos has recalled Habitat products under the Eton, Jackson and Isla ranges, which include sofas, chairs and footstools.

The retailer said that it discovered “an important fire safety issue” after routine testing and adds to the previous recall of the Tammy sofas. (Read more).

A statement said: “Argos Habitat takes the safety of its customers extremely seriously. As a result, we are writing to inform you of an important fire safety issue, discovered during routine testing, in relation to the fabric used on Eton sofas and footstools (and Jackson sofas and Isla sofas).

“A number of products have failed to meet the required fire safety standards and if exposed to a naked flame, the cover fabric could catch fire. Other upholstery materials used to make this product (such as foam and fibre) are unaffected by this issue and comply with the fire safety standards.
