Matalan has recalled a range of cushions following the discovery that they may prevent a fire risk.

The homeware retailer says that the cushions, which come a variety of colours, have a filling which may pose a flammability risk when subjected to prolonged exposure to an ignition source.

"As customer safety is our highest priority, we are immediately recalling these cushions," said a company spokesperson.

The cushions in question, which were on sale from June 12 - March 23, come in cream, grey, blue, yellow, pink, and green (M490090 2 M490091 2 M490092 2 M490093 2 M490634 2 M490635 2 M490636 2) and velvet cushions, silver, plum and black (M684578 M684577 M684579).
