"Made in USA" Label Removed From Retailer's Website

Walmart has decided that the best course of action is remove the label, versus working with the FTC.

The FTC said in a letter to Walmart‘s associate general counsel posted on the FTC’s website on Tuesday, that it would not pursue action against Walmart WMT -0.25% because the retailer had taken voluntary steps to “prevent consumer deception.” Those included removing “Made in USA” logos from product listings on its website and removing U.S. country of origin claims that appeared in product descriptions or titles. In some cases it is also making more detailed disclosures regarding the percentage of U.S. content contained in the product.

Interesting. Either have the label or not.
