FTC: Made In The USA Comments Concerning David Winn--P894219
July 11, 1997
Ms. Dorian Hall
Dear Ms. Hall:
Enclosed please find correspondence from David Winn.
I would greatly appreciate any response your office can provide on this inquiry. You may respond directly to the constituent at the following address:
Additionally, please send a copy of your response to Andrew Higley at 517 Hart Senate Office Building, Washington, D.C. 20510.
Thank you for your attention to this matter.
Dear Senator CONNIE MACK:
U.S. working men and women and consumers need your help.
The Federal Trade Commission says "Made in U.S.A." in advertisements and on product labels should no longer have to mean what it says.
Currently, for the most part, consumers can be confident that "Made in U.S.A." means "all or virtually all" domestic parts and labor, as you know.
To permit less than "all or virtually all" would be to perpetrate a fraud on the American public and open even wider the door to U.S. jobs being moved overseas.
The FTC must be called to task by you and the other members of Congress.
