Even people unfamiliar with the FTC carry with them virtually ever hour of the day a little reminder from America’s consumer protection agency. It’s the care label included on most things they wear — and the FTC is asking for feedback on its future from consumers, members of the apparel and textile industry, people in the cleaning business, and others.
As part of its systematic review of FTC rules and guides, the Commission is seeking public comment on the costs, benefits, necessity, and economic impact of the Care Labeling Rule. The FTC has asked 15 specific questions, but welcomes general suggestions, too (although a federal investigation into what happened to all those mismatched socks in the dryer is beyond the scope of the agency’s inquiry).
Save some time and effort by filing your comment online by the September 6th deadline.
