If part of your breezy spring look includes scarves from Ivanka Trump’s personal fashion line, you’d better check the labels and stay away from open flames because they might be hazardous to your health.
According to The Washington Post, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) issued a recall on Wednesday due to burn hazards involving the women’s rayon scarves carrying the ““IVANKA TRUMP” brand name.
“The scarves do not meet the federal flammability standards for clothing textiles, posing a burn risk,” the recall reads. GBG Accessories, the company that imports “IVANKA TRUMP” scarves, states: “consumers should immediately stop using the recalled scarves and return them to the place where purchased for a full refund.”
The recall applies to about 20,000 scarves made under the label. Interestingly, the scarves were produced in China, one of several countries Donald Trump, Ivanka’s father, says are stealing American jobs. Perhaps, she received some tips from her daddy, whose own signature menswear line was found to be produced in low-wage countries as well, including China.
How do you take care of our people if you don't make anything? We don't make anything. We are rapidly losing our manufacturing to China etc.

Remember, China is not a friend of the United States!

Currently, no injuries have been reported, presumably because scarves pose less of a hazard than faulty Aston Martin accelerator pedals, 384,181 toxic Volkswagen vehicles or hoverboards.
Wondering about the best way to wrap your colorful fire hazard around neck. Scarf Lady has some suggestions for this spring/summer season:
