Donald Trump, the presidential candidate, doesn’t think much of American companies manufacturing overseas. He’s slammed Apple and Ford for doing so.
Trump, the businessman, is another story. As several media outlets have noted, many Trump-branded products are made in China. Ivanka Trump-branded scarves are among them.
And on Wednesday, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) announced that 20,000 of his daughter’s scarves are being recalled for violating the U.S. Federal Flammability Standard. The scarves “pose a burn risk,” the CSPC said. No injuries have been reported.
“Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled scarves and return them to the place where purchased for a full refund,” according to the recall notice. Two styles — “Beach Wave” and “Brushstroke Oblong” — are affected by the recall. Century 21, Lord & Taylor, Marshalls, TJ Maxx and Stein Mart retail stores sell the scarves. Prices range from $12 to $68.
“We’re disappointed to learn of the need for Global Brands Group, our license partner, to recall two styles of Ivanka Trump scarves, but we are relieved that immediate action is being taken,” a spokesperson for the Ivanka Trump collection said in a statement. “We’re committed to providing our audience of millennial working women with accessibly priced, quality products that suit their needs and look great. We’re seeing to it that this issue is fixed immediately.”
