The CPSC has announced the following recalls of products made in mainland China.
GBG Accessories Group (formerly LF Accessories Group LLC) has issued a recall for about 20,000 scarves because they do not meet the federal flammability standards for clothing textiles. This recall involves two styles of Ivanka Trump-branded scarves: Beach Wave in blue, coral and yellow; and Brushstroke Oblong in blue, red, neutral and green. Both scarves are 76 inches long by 24 inches wide. They are 100 percent rayon with a machine-rolled hem. A black label with “IVANKA TRUMP” embroidered in silver is sewn on the edge of the scarves.

IKEA North America Services LLC has issued a recall for approximately 11,000 children’s costumes in the United States and about 750 children’s costumes in Canada because the fabric hook and loop fastener at the neck of the bat cape can fail to detach readily during use, posing a strangulation hazard to children. The recalled children’s bat cape costumes are black with grey stripes. They are 100 percent polyester, measure 30 inches long by 57 inches wide, and have a fabric hook and loop fastener closure at the neck. IKEA, LATTJO, and numbers 60311650 and 18937 are printed on a white label sewn into the seam of the cape.

The Coleman Company Inc. has recalled about 8,500 flashlights in the United States and approximately 500 flashlights in Canada because the lithium-ion batteries in these flashlights can overheat and pose a fire hazard.
