Wrapables recalls women’s scarves for burn injury hazard

By Colleen Kave, J.D.

Wrapables, of Fremont, California, has recalled around 1,900 women’s scarves because the scarves fail to meet the federal flammability standard for clothing textiles, posing a risk of burn injuries to consumers (CPSC Recall Notice, No. 18-740, May 9, 2018).

Incidents and injuries. No incidents or injuries have been reported.

Product description. This recall involves 100% silk Wrapables women’s scarves. The scarves measure about 65 inches long by 21 inches wide and have a small side seam label with "100% silk" printed on it. The scarves were sold in the following colors: Azure Blue, Bright Fuchsia, Brown Corn Silk Cream, Dark Blue, Floral White, Lime Green, Midnight Black, Orchid Purple, Peony Pink, Rose Red, Sky Blue, and Tangerine Orange. On Amazon.com, the recalled scarves were sold as "Wrapables Lightweight 100% Silk Butterfly Print Long Scarf."

These scarves, which were manufactured in China, were sold online at Amazon.com, Walmart.com, and Wrapables.com from March 2014 through March 2018 for between $10 and $20.

Remedy. Consumers should stop using the recalled scarves immediately and contact Wrapables for a full refund. Wrapables is contacting directly consumers who purchased the scarves online from Walmart.com and Amazon.com.

Customer contact. For more information, customers may contact Wrapables toll-free at 888-651-1638 from 8:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. PT, Monday through Friday; via email at service@wrapables.com with "Product Recall" as the email subject; or online at www.wrapables.com and click on the Important Notice tab located at the bottom of the webpage.
