A set of Poundland Halloween outfits including a set of coloured wigs and a witch’s hat need to be returned, trading standards in Northamptonshire has warned, as they are thought to be a fire risk.

The budget store is recalling the coloured “Halloween and celebration wigs,” “Halloween Clip In Hair Pieces” and “Witches Hat with Hair” because neither meets the “Toy Safety flammability” standard.

Poundland says the items, all of which come with coloured fake hair, pose a risk “if exposed to a naked flame.”

The Halloween wigs affected have been on sale since August and the “Celebrations” dress up wigs have been on sale since March 2015 at Poundland stores, Poundland Online and Dealz stores.

The Witches Hat with Hair, has been on sale since August 2013 and the clip in hair pieces have been on sale since August this year.

All of the products come in a range of colours.
