Silk scarves recalled for failing federal flammability standard

Posted on April 22, 2015 4:25 pm under Product Liability

About 9,400 silk scarves were recalled by Gena Accessories Inc. of New York after finding out that the products failed the federal standard for flammability of wearing apparel, which may create a serious risk of burns in the event of a fire, according to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) on April 16.

The scarves were sold at specialty boutiques across New York City and online at Amazon.com, Scarfland.com, and GenaAccessories.com between January 2007 and February 2015. The products were made available in different colors, including yellow, white, turquoise, red, and light green, and measure 64 inches long by 18 inches wide.

Consumers are urged not to use the recalled products and to contact the company for a refund.
