In the Matter of Underground Sports Inc., d/b/a Patriot Puck; Hockey Underground Inc.,d/b/a Patriot Puck; Ipuck Inc., d/b/a Patriot Puck; IPuck Hockey Inc., d/b/a Patriot Puck; and George Statler III, File No. 1823113
I am disappointed that the FTC has chosen to give a free pass to companies that label their products as Made in USA, but really make their products in China or other foreign countries. I place great value in a Made in USA label. It means jobs, quality, and strong communities. But when companies make their products overseas -- in this case, backpacks, hockey pucks, and mattresses -- and deceive consumers with a Made in USA label it completely undermines my trust. And it is unfair to those companies who play by the rules and truly make their products in America. It is your job to not let these cheaters get away with this deception. This means imposing tougher rules and actual penalties on those who knowingly cheat the system -- not a slap on the wrist. ---- Please see attachment for additional signatories to this comment.
