FTC Challenges Made in USA Claims

FTC Challenges Made in USA Claims

For many American consumers the decision to buy products made in the USA is an important one. The Federal Trade Commission recently published an article regarding a particular company that is being sued for making false claims by advertising it’s products as “Made in the USA” or “Proudly Made in the USA”.

According to the complaint, this company claimed its products are “all or virtually all made in the US”. The FTC alleges that approximately 55% of chemicals used in the products are attributable to imported chemicals. Therefore, the suit states that the company’s claims were deceptive because although the products are made in the US, they are made with domestic and imported materials.

This company also manufactured products under brand names for other retailers. The article states  “Thus, the complaint alleges that [the company] provided others with the ‘means and instrumentalities’ to deceive consumers.”

If you’re currently marketing products as “Made in the USA”, or are considering doing so, the FTC has  the following publications and more available to companies.

Startup Professionals Musings: Too Busy for Social Media Marketing Could Be Fatal

Startup Professionals Musings: Too Busy for Social Media Marketing Could Be Fatal

If you’re not using any Socia Media tools yet for your business, you may want to read this article at the above link. While it’s certainly not the only answer to providing your company with sustainability, it’s probably something you should explore.

Are you feeling too busy like I used to? Just ease into it and you’ll soon find that it’s not as bad as you think. Yes, I still have a lot to learn and I have no intention of replacing good customer service with Tweeting or Blogging . I enjoy the interaction with our wonderful clients. But I do know I have to swim with the tide or get left on the island- so I work at it for a bit after hours.
