Shoppers slam Fashion Nova for selling bikinis which contain ingredients thought to cause cancer and birth defects – according to the label

SHOPPERS have expressed their horror after discovering Fashion Nova’s swimsuits contain chemicals which are linked to cancer.

A woman tweeted a photo of the label they found inside a neon green bikini, which warned about various chemicals including lead.

Found inside the Water Sports Bikini, which costs £26.87, $34.99, the label says: “This product can expose you to DI(2-ethylhexyl), phthalate, lead and cadmium, which are known to the state of California to cause cancer, birth defects and other reproductive harm.”

Sharing the image the Twitter user captioned their post: “Did y’all know this tag is in Fashion Nova swimsuits ?”

Her post has racked up thousands of retweets, with people horrified after realising what’s in their clothing.

One person said: “Beauty is pain and sometimes death.”

Another tweeted: “What do ya’ll expect… fast fashion comes with a price baby.”

A third said: “What doesn’t cause cancer nowadays.”

This person wrote: “Hold on you’re telling me Fashion Nova causes cancer. WILD.”

While someone else posted: “It’s crazy because it’s not even just Fashion Nova . . .  check every tag when buying clothing items.”

This person added: “Ya’ll this is actually insane though, please return anything with this label.”

And people asked the original tweeter if she was still planning on wearing the bikini, to which she replied: “Girl maybe just this one time. Idk. It’s cute but s***.”

This shocked people, with someone replying: “I’m dead. She basically just said ‘Lmfao girl get cancer in the name of bein cute'.”

Despite the warning in the label and others shoppers' reactions, the woman later wore the swimsuit in a series of snaps on the beach.

But when someone asked where her outfit was from, she passed on the warning.

She wrote: "Girl fashion nova but something in it can cause cancer and other reproductive problems.

"It was my first and last time wearing it."

The brand’s website states the label has been included in line with California Proposition 65.

Their website says: “We make this warning as a result of Proposition 65, the Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act of 1986, which requires us to inform citizens in California about exposures to certain chemicals.

“WARNING: Products sold on this site may contain chemicals known to the State of California to cause cancer, birth defects or other reproductive harm.”
