Scarves from Ivanka Trump’s personal fashion line are deemed too hot for fashion.
The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) has recently warned that scarves carrying the ““Ivanka Trump” brand name pose a serious fire risk, the Washington Post reported. A recall was issued by the agency on Wednesday for 20,000 Trump scarves which were manufactured in China and sold nationwide at Century 21, Lord & Taylor, Marshall, TJ Maxx and Stein Mart.

“The scarves do not meet the federal flammability standards for clothing textiles, posing a burn risk,” said the announcement.
“Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled scarves and return them to the place where purchased for a full refund,” said GBG Accessories Group’s recall notice.
The styles “Beach Wave” and “Brushstroke Oblong” of Ivanka Trump’s personal fashion collection are both affected by the recall.
“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,” said an Ivanka Trump collection spokesperson 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.”
