FTC Tames Lions Making “Made in USA” Claims
Play • 4 min
Lions Not Sheep is a clothing company that, in its own words, allows consumers who wear its clothes to “show people it’s possible to live your life as a LION, not a sheep.” In addition to making people aware of that possibility, the company prominently advertises that its goods are “Made in the USA,” “Made in America,” “100% AMERICAN MADE,” and – to put a finer point on it – the “BEST DAMN AMERICAN MADE GEAR ON THE PLANET.” Lions Clothing TagThe FTC disagreed on the US origin claims (but stayed largely silent on the possibility of living like a lion). According to its complaint, the company took clothing that was made in another country, removed tags showing the country of origin, and printed “Made in the USA” on the items. The FTC alleged that in most cases, goods that were advertised as “Made in USA” were wholly imported with limited finishing work performed in the United States. https://www.adlawaccess.com/2022/05/articles/ftc-tames-lions-making-made-in-usa-claims/ Contact Gonzalo E.
