Ivanka Trump's Chinese-made scarves recalled because they're incredibly flammable

Regardless of your political views, you'll want to keep the "Beach Wave" and "Brushstroke Oblong" models off your neck

Do you see these scarves? They carry a label reading “IVANKA TRUMP” and if they get near an open flame, they apparently turn into flaming torches of rayon.

What I’m saying is maybe you shouldn’t wear one of these scarves. That’s at least according to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, which published information Wednesday about a recall of 20,000 Trump scarves.

“The scarves do not meet the federal flammability standards for clothing textiles, posing a burn risk,” reads the recall announcement. There have been no reported injuries.

“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 from GBG Accessories Group.

Two styles — “Beach Wave” and “Brushstroke Oblong” —are affected by the recall. The scarves, manufactured in China, are sold nationwide at Century 21, Lord & Taylor, Marshall, TJ Maxx and Stein Mart.

“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.”

Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled scarves and return them to the place where purchased for a full refund.”

Ivanka Trump’s father, Donald, also sells a line of men’s clothing. The Republican presidential front-runner — who rails against jobs moving overseas — has been criticized for having his men’s line manufactured in low-wage countries such as China, Bangladesh and Honduras.

Ivanka Trump’s products used to appear on the Trump Organization website alongside her father’s. They were removed last month amid criticism over the Trump family outsourcing.

Information about how to get a refund from the Ivanka Trump scarf recall is posted on the CPSC website here.
