According to the animal rights organization, raccoon dog fur was found in the trim even though it was advertised as faux fur.
The non-domestic dogs are indigenous to Asia and commonly used because their fur closely resembles that of raccoons.
The Humane Society's CEO Wayne Pacelle said both retailers and designers "aren’t paying close enough attention to the fur trim they are selling."
After the discovery, Diddy quickly issued a statement:
"I was completely unaware of the nature of this material, but as soon as we were alerted, the garments were pulled off the Macy’s floor and Web site. I have instructed our outerwear licensee to cease the production of any garments using this material immediately."
What's worse is Sean John isn't the only clothing company that's guilty of using this type of fur. Out of the 10 labels the Humane Society tested, 9 of them tested positive for raccoon dog fur.
