Ivanka Trump-branded scarves that were made in China have been recalled due to flammability concerns.

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission recalled about 20,000 of the scarves Wednesday over the risk the apparel could catch fire, reported The Washington Post. No injuries from the scarves have been reported.

Anyone who purchased the Beach Wave or Brushstroke Oblong scarf should “immediately stop using” the scarf, and can return it for a full refund, the CPSC said in the recall announcement, adding: “The scarves do not meet the federal flammability standards for clothing textiles, posing a burn risk.”

Ivanka is Republican frontrunner Donald Trump’s daughter.

The scarves go for between $12 and $68 dollars, and were sold at Century 21, Lord & Taylor, Marshalls, TJ Maxx and Stein Mart stores nationwide between October, 2014, and January, 2016. Scarves could also be purchased online from retailers such as Amazon and Loehmanns.

The company is “seeing to it that this issue is fixed immediately,” a spokesperson for the Ivanka Trump collection told the Washington Post in a statement.

“We’re disappointed to learn of the need for Global Brands Group, our license partner, to recall two styles of Ivanka Trump scarves, but we are relieved that immediate action is being taken,” the spokesperson said.

None of the clothing in Ivanka Trump’s clothing line is made exclusively in the U.S., Harvard professor Robert Lawrence found after looking into the clothing line, reported CNN Money.

Donald Trump, whose own clothing line features products such as suits and ties that have been made in China, has criticized companies such as Apple for producing products outside of the U.S. and has called for a tariff of up to 45 percent on products exported from China to the U.S, reported The New York Times.
