Target issuing refunds to anyone who bought “fake” Egyptian cotton sheets

According to Bloomberg, Target said Friday that 750,000 pillowcases and sheets from Welspun India Ltd. were labeled as Egyptian cotton but actually made from another material. The bedding, sold from August 2014 to July 2016 under the brand Fieldcrest, has been pulled from store shelves.

The affected products include Fieldcrest 500 thread count Satin-Stitch Damask Egyptian cotton sheets and 500 thread count Geo Pattern Egyptian cotton sheets, according to Target’s website.

“We have informed Welspun that, due to this conduct, we are in the process of terminating our relationship with them,” Target spokeswoman Molly Snyder told Bloomberg. “We value the trust that our guests place in us. The Target team will continue to work closely with all vendors to help ensure that the products we offer to our guests meet or exceed their expectations.”

Welspun said it is conducting an audit into the matter.

“The error is on our side, so we have to take responsibility for it,” said Rajesh Mandawewala, Welspun’s managing director.
