WASHINGTON — The Humane Society of the U.S. filed another legal petition with the Federal Trade Commission on Thursday against several national retailers for false advertising and mislabeling of fur garments.

The complaint alleged that a number of retailers, including Bloomingdale's, Saks Inc., Caché Inc. and Sears, sold fur-trimmed garments that were falsely advertised or mislabeled as fake fur or genuine raccoon or coyote fur. But the complaint charges that tests done by the organization showed that the garments had fur derived from other sources or from members of the canine family such as raccoon dog, domestic dog or wolf.
