The brand that you’re looking at has been verified by our independent team of researchers at AllAmerican.org as 100% made in the USA. They manufacture their products in the United States and exclusively use US suppliers for all raw materials.
Why It Matters
Finding brands that are 100% made in the USA is very difficult these days.
US law requires that products be labeled with their country of origin on the physical product or packaging, but that law doesn’t apply to their website or marketing materials. So, it’s tough to tell what products are domestically made and which are imported.
Made in the USA messaging is also a mess. It’s up to the company’s discretion if they meet “made in the USA” criteria and use it in their marketing. The FTC has a Made in the USA Standard, but punishment for violating that standard is all retroactive, meaning there is no application process to use made in the USA messaging in your marketing. So, some companies may never get caught, and if they do, it’s too late for some of their customers who have already been deceived.
Companies also skate around this FTC standard by using variations of “made in the USA, ” like:
- Assembled in the USA
- Designed in the USA
- Engineered in the USA
- Manufactured in the USA
- Handcrafted in the USA
- Made in the USA with global materials
All of this language does not fall within the jurisdiction of the FTC Made in the USA Standard and is designed to deceive American consumers.
That’s why we have our Made in the USA Certification Program at AllAmerican.org. We are an independent third party that verifies domestic manufacturing locations and US-based supply chains to give you confidence that you’re buying products that are 100% made here.
