    Holiday Shoppers Beware: Six Major Retailers Selling Real Fur as Faux



    The Humane Society of the United States is warning shoppers to be on the lookout for real fur described as faux when shopping at department stores and online retailers this holiday season. Following up on last winter's HSUS investigation that uncovered a faux fur scandal in the apparel and retail industry, HSUS discovered again this winter that many leading retailers—including Bloomingdale's, Neiman Marcus, Lord and Taylor, Dillard's, Saks Fifth Avenue and Yoox.com—have not addressed this consumer deception.
