    Anyone else noticed how the mandatory "country of origin" label for many items "Made in China" has changed from an inconspicuous and easily removed piece of paper to a bold cast or stamped brand? Charles

    What I've noticed about product labels is that they now include that materials used were from the U.S.
    For instance, "made in China with materials from America."

    What that means is the label was made in the USA. Everything else was made in china.

    I just bought some parts, and the label on the bag said "Made in USA or china". I sent them back.

    That means that we shipped over the scrap metal they made the item from...

    Our family is in, effectively, the cotton business. Cotton is "gone" here as industrial material... China affects - positively - what we and the farmers get...

    Funny.. All the us subsidies for cotton serve to help China and other contries get it cheaper. I guess that is ok... :>

    What I have been noticing is no label at all.

    That was an urban myth, the law says country of origine. If you are going to play games, you don't have to rename your city to put on a counterfit tag.

    Nope. They were removed in a cost reduction pass
