FTC: Made In The USA Comments Concerning Loretta Keating--P894219
July 26, 1997
Federal Trade Commission
To Whom It May Concern:
Please do not relax the 50-year-old-rule that "all or virtually all" of a product be made domestically before it can be labeled "Made in the U.S.A.".
We are being sold short ... the American people are loosing jobs because of a worldwide market. Corporations are making all the profits ... not Americans! I want the truth when I buy a product. I want to know where it's made. If 80% of a product's cost is domestic, then label the product 80% made in the USA - or 50% etc.
I want to purchase items made in the USA and it's getting tougher these days to do that!
Please be honest in telling us where items are made. Made in the USA should mean only one thing-- that all of the product was made here.
Please accept the original proposal.
Send comments to me at 22 Brandywine Drive, Glenmoore, PA 19343.
Ms. Loretta Keating
