What Made In The USA Means And Why It Matters
Now we can talk about the importance of USA-made materials and products. “Made In USA” labels are trademarked by the Federal Trade Commission (FTC). To be considered Made In U.S.A, it’s stated that “all or virtually all” significant parts and processing that go into the product must be of US origin. For some industries, if their items are assembled in the US with more than 50% American-made parts, they are still legally allowed to use the trademarked label. Because of these broad terms, both consumers and companies can become confused about the validity of this label. There’s good news though. Some companies, like WireCrafters, sell products that are 100% Made In U.S.A.
