Here’s what ‘Made in USA’ actually means

“But what does it actually mean to have a manufactured item be designated as “Made in America?”

The standards are stricter than you might think. “Made in USA” is a label protected by the Federal Trade Commission, or FTC. In order for an item to be called such, the item must be made within the United States’ borders from “all or virtually all” American parts — that is, with parts also made in the US.

According to the FTC’s website, “all or virtually all” means that “all significant parts and processing that go into the product must be of US origin. That is, the product should contain no — or negligible — foreign content.” ”
