Readers Respond: What is ‘Made in USA?’
[The following letter is a response to “NRF sees ‘made in USA,’ even in imports,” which appeared in the May 28 HCN Daily.]
"Is the NRF trying to make us believe even though a product comes in from China, it's really to be considered a U.S.-made product because it has 'some' U.S. content? That's stretching the truth.
"We U.S. manufacturers are greedy ... we want 'all of the jobs' here, not part of them. The FTC states, 'all, or virtually all' is the requirement for 'Made in USA.' There are no other legal designations.
"I think if the NRF were to poll the millions of Americans out of work, they might sing a different song."
