PRETTYLITTLETHING has denied claims it has a flea infestation at its warehouse after calling in pest control.
The brand called in exterminators after several customers complained that their packages arrived filled with bugs.
A spokesperson for PLT said: “As soon as recent ‘bugs in packages’ allegations came to light we immediately launched an investigation.
“This included an inspection by a 3rd party pest control review of our warehouse, we can confirm that we have found no evidence to support the claims being made.”
They added: “We are extremely proud of our warehouse and the teams who maintain them and we hope that the information provided has addressed the concerns that have been raised”
It comes as furious fashionistas took to social media to claim that there were bugs inside their orders.
One customer Saf filmed her PrettyLittleThing package – which appeared to have fleas on it – while screaming.
And Arya Anderson uploaded a video claiming there were the tiny bugs in both of her parcels from the online retailer.
In the clip, an insect can be seen inside plastic packaging crawling on green clothes.
She said: “Oh God, I feel so sick.”
On social media, Brits said they were avoiding shopping at Pretty Little Thing out of fears over flea problems.
Camila Tavares said: “Too scared to order anything from PLT because I don’t want any pretty little fleas with my parcel.”
Amy Brett commented: “Love PLT but huns you can’t accuse all these people of putting fleas in their packages.”
Em Harwood posted: “Wanna order some flares from PLT but not tryna get fleas so i’m very scared.”
Ellie Sandall added: “Seen far too many fleas in PLT parcels on TikTok to make me never wanna buy from there again.”
The online retailer – which often gives out bumper deals to fans online – is a favourite among Instagram influencers and reality stars.
Ambassadors include former Love Island winner Molly-Mae Hague who regularly posts snaps modelling their clothes online.
The company has attracted a massive following, with giveaways of £10,000 worth of clothes to one winner.
