CPSC and Fashionique II Announce Scarf Recall

WASHINGTON, D.C. -- The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) and Fashionique II Inc., of Willow Springs, Ill., are announcing the recall of 40,000 flammable sheer silk chiffon scarves. The scarves fail to comply with the requirements of the Flammable Fabrics Act and present a serious risk of burn injuries. In fact, these scarves burn faster than newspaper.

The long, flowing, sheer silk scarves were available in 11 styles. Various retailers including Dress Barn, Caldor's, Fashion Gal, and Warehouse of Fashion, sold the scarves nationwide from January 1995 through November 1995 for between $6 and $10. The scarves, which were made in China, are labeled in part,"Pure Silk by 37 West, RN 62415."

Consumers should immediately stop wearing these scarves and return the scarves to the retailers where they were purchased. Retailers taking part in this recall will help consumers identify whether their scarves are affected by this recall. If consumers own a recalled scarf, retailers will provide a refund or replacement.

Consumers who have questions can call Fashionique II at (212) 391-5252 or CPSC's toll free Hotline at (800) 638-2772.

CPSC identified these dangerous scarves during surveillance efforts on other scarves.
