Target / false and deceptive labeling of bedding

Contact information:

Target is selling pillows with packaging that states "bamboo/cotton blend covered pillow 60% bamboo/40% cotton 300 thread count cover" The label on the actual pillow states 60% rayon 40% cotton 100% polyester. Target claims it is aware of this fact and that rayon is the same thing as bamboo and that rayon is processed from bamboo. This is false. The consumer is being decieved if he believes that this is a bamboo product. Rayon is not a fabric made from bamboo. Target is simply cheating the consumer by not stating the fact that this is a rayon/cotton blend. The package the pillow is in has very large letters BAMBOO. No company should be able to knowingly deceive the consumer. I did notify Target but they are relying on the false claim that the rayon pillow is a bamboo pillow.

    I'm sorry, but I had to laugh when I read this complaint. Seriously, you'd like bamboo pillows? Instead of being processed to make soft fibers, also known as rayon. You'd just like unprocessed rayon? For those who don't know how rayon is made... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rayon#Production_method
