Givenchy’s Men’s Silk Shirts Pose ‘Burn Risk’

Burn baby burn! Something you only want to hear coming form a radio and not your closet.

Last Tuesday, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) issued a recall over flammable apparel for three men’s T-shirts from Givenchy’s spring 2016 collection due to the fact that they “failed to meet federal flammability standards and pose the risk of burn injuries to its owners.”

The shirts, which were made entirely of silk, included a “sheer black-and-white striped crew neck, a blue plaid V-neck shirt and a black shirt with imagery of Jesus Christ.”

The reported amount of shirts in the market are around 60 units which have been available since February among Givenchy boutiques as well as other retailers such as Maxfield, Forward by Elyse Walker, Neiman Marcus and Barneys New York. Barneys and Bergdorf Goodman apparently still have shirts available which are both expected to ship in May, according to reports. 

Givenchy is to directly contact those who bought the shirts with the  label also advising customers to return recalled items for a full refund, ranging between $685 to $1,350, according to CPSC.

This comes after Ivanka Trump’s brand of China made scarves, had over 20,000 items recalled last Wednesday after they were deemed highly flammable.
