Made in the USA Defined
According to Consumer Reports, 80% of American shoppers say they prefer to buy goods made in the United States. But, what does the “Made in the USA” designation really mean? The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) requires that a product advertised as “Made in the USA” be “all or virtually all” made in the U.S. This means that for a product to be “Made in the USA,” all significant parts and processing that go into the product must be of U.S. origin – and the manufacturer is required to have competent and reliable evidence to back up the claim that the product is, in fact, “Made in the USA.”
