The retailers advertised various items as being made with faux fur, even though the products contain real animal fur.</div>

Good! This is such a ridiculous issue, I hope the HSUS keeps pushing to get it resolved. It also makes me really happy that I don't happen to like faux fur so I never bought any, just the thought that I could have been wearing real fur without knowing it horrifies me.
