Here is another product recall that proves that boutique fashion can come at a serious price! Julie Vos of New York has recently recalled about 324 women’s scarves, due to failing to meet the federal flammability standard. There has been one report of a scarf catching fire.
The Flammable Fabrics Act was passed in 1953 in efforts to regulate the manufacture of highly flammable clothing. Find out more about the Flammable Fabrics Act, here. These particular Julie Vos scarves are 100% modal, a rayon fabric, and pose a risk of burn injury to consumers.
The scarves come in two patterns and several different colors, and were available at specialty boutiques nationwide and online. If you have purchased a scarf recently, Julie Vos instructs you to stop using the product and contact the company to arrange the return of the item for a full refund.
