Retailers settle ‘faux’ fur claims

WASHINGTON — The FTC said Tuesday that Neiman Marcus and two other retailers have agreed to settle charges that they claimed certain products were made of ‘‘faux’’ fur when they actually contained real fur.

The Federal Trade Commission said the companies also violated federal laws by not naming the animal that the fur came from.

The FTC also charged that Neiman Marcus Group claimed that a rabbit fur product had mink fur, and failed to disclose where the fur came from for three fur products.

Under the proposed settlement, the retailers would be prohibited from violating the laws for 20 years.

The deals remain subject to public comment for 30 days, after which the commission will decide whether to make them final.
