HSUS releases report on retailers selling real fur as fake

According to this story at the Humane Society of the United States' website, six major retailers are selling items containing real fur even though they are advertised or labeled as fake. The fake fur instead was made from rabbit, raccoon, raccoon dog, or some combination thereof. The report from HSUS's investigation is available here (pdf). The story also notes that false labeling violates the federal fur products labeling act, which is enforced by the FTC.
