Made-in-China Ivanka Trump-brand scarves are being recalled because they are too flammable and pose a "burn risk" to consumers, the AP reports. The recall involves about 20,000 rayon scarves, sold from October 2014 through January 2016 in department stores and online. They cost from $12 to $68. Ivanka's father, Donald Trump, has criticized companies that move manufacturing outside the US and has threatened to impose steep tariffs on Chinese imports if elected. He has acknowledged, however, that some of his own products were made outside the US.

A representative for the Ivanka Trump brand, which includes clothing, accessories, and fragrances, said that it is disappointed for the need for a recall but relieved action is being taken. "We're seeing to it that this issue is fixed immediately," a spokeswoman for the Ivanka Trump Collection tells the AP. The US Consumer Product Safety Commission says no injuries have been reported, but consumers should stop wearing the scarves and return them for a full refund. (Ivanka hasn't ruled out running for office some day.} (More Ivanka Trump stories.)
