The Humane Society filed a petition to the Federal Trade Commission yesterday, alleging that almost a dozen North American retailers have been misadvertising fur garments or garments with fur trim as “faux,” reports NBC.
But it’s not just false advertising: the retailers also sell the real, raccoon dog fur-ornamented gear at faux fur prices.
For Black Friday shoppers who want to take advantage of this lucky consumer loophole before it closes, the following retailers “are now or have recently been engaged in the selling of fur garments that are falsesly or misleadingly advertised and/or labeled as faux fur when, in fact, the garments include fur made from real animals,” according to the petition:
- Barneys New York
- Gilt Groupe
- Neiman Marcus
- Summit Sports
