“Faux Fur” is Animal-Based

HSUS has filed a legal petition after lab testing revealed that products marketed as “Faux Fur” are actually real fur.

Last week, the Humane Society of the United States filed a complaint with the Federal Trade Commission against nearly a dozen retailers for advertising garments containing real fur as “faux.” Independent laboratory testing organized by HSUS reveals that at least 15 articles advertised as faux fur were actually made with the pelts of animals like coyote, raccoon, and sheep, putting retailers in direct violation of the 1951 Fur Products Labeling Act and the 2010 Truth in Fur Labeling Act. The complaint names major retailers such as Neiman Marcus, Gilt Groupe, and Barneys, as falsely advertising the garments.
