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.
