Around 20,000 of Ivanka Trump-branded scarves have been recalled for not meeting the federal flammability standards.
The Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) announced Wednesday that scarves associated with Donald Trump’s daughter violate U.S. Flammability Standards and pose a burn risk to consumers. The recall involves two styles of pure rayon scarves— a material that catches fire easier than paper—costing $12-$68 and sold from October 2014 through department stores and online.
“Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled scarves and return them to the place where purchased for a full refund,” the CPSC page states. “Consumers who purchased the scarves online will be contacted directly by online retailers with return instructions.”
Despite the questionable quality of the scarves, what’s even more ironic here is that the Trump-branded clothing accessories were manufactured in China.
Ivanka Trump has been very supportive of her infamous GOP father’s rhetoric, claiming he would make a “strong leader” and “bring jobs back to America.” But she is earning millions by doing something her father has been very vocal against in his rallies: manufacturing products overseas, especially in China.
Apparently, the idea of non-Americans assembling or creating Ford, Nabisco and Apple products doesn’t sit well with the GOP front-runner’s vision to “Make America Great Again.”
One of his most famous statements, “We’re gonna get Apple to start building their damn computers and things in this country, instead of in other countries,” has been met with ridicule from his opponents who believe he is completely misguided.
Yet, it is quite strange he has not advised his daughter to follow the same principle. Apparently, the lure of more money in exchange for cheap-quality clothing was enough to keep his mouth shut on the topic.
Talk about hypocrisy.
