Love Made in the USA products? We're bringing you all the best deals on these items so you don't have to pay more for USA made products. Finding products that are made in the USA can feel like a challenge at times. Seeing a flag on the label doesn’t necessarily mean that an item was made on American soil.
Here are some tips to help you identify made in the USA products:
If you're truly looking to buy something made in the USA, you need to consider three factors: who owns the company, where the product is manufactured and assembled, and where the parts come from. In many cases, you may have to do a little digging to find this information.
First, it’s important to understand how products are labeled. “Made in the USA” and “Assembled in the USA” have two different meanings. Many manufacturers will use the “assembled” label to indicate where the product was put together, even if all of its parts were created offshore. Since these products must still be "substantially transformed” in the US to carry this label, purchasing these items will still support American jobs to some extent.
Next, consumers should understand that there’s a difference between labels reading "Made in the USA" and "Made in America." In this case, “America” can also include products made in Mexico or Canada.
Even with all of the government’s labeling regulations, it should be noted that there are plenty of false labels that make their way onto products. Our best advice to anyone wishing to buy made in the USA goods is to research the company and learn about their manufacturing practices.
This may not always be practical when you’re pressed for time or shopping in-store, so the next best practice is to look for a tag or label reading “Made in the USA,” and then read it for clues that it’s legitimate.
Goods that were made in the USA are less likely to have blatant spelling or grammar mistakes, because American factory workers may be more likely to notice obvious errors during production.
