shatnez-testers-logo1On Shabbos a consumer glanced down at his Banana Republic tie and noticed that the content label read 70% Silk 30% Linen, Made in Turkey.

He immediately removed the tie. After Shabbos he brought the tie to the Lakewood Shatnez laboratory for inspection and it was found to contain a wool blend interlining.

He was surprised because he had purchased the tie for only $18.99
