A federal agency recalled around 20,000 scarves made under the Ivanka Trump brand on Wednesday for failing to meet flammability standards, the Houston Chronicle reported.

The Consumer Product Safety Commission’s decision affects Trump’s Brushstroke Oblong and Beach Wave scarves, both of which are made entirely of rayon.

The scarves, which bear her name, “do not meet the federal flammability standards for clothing textiles, posing a burn risk,” the agency said.

According to the Wall Street Journal, the scarves are also made in China. Trump’s father, Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump, has been criticized for following similar business practices, saying it is “impossible” to manufacture clothes in the US because China and other nations like Mexico devalue their currency.

The commission stated that customers will be entitled to a refund following the recall. The scarves sell for anywhere between $12 and $68.
