It Says Made In USA, But Is It Really?

You want to support made in USA items, so you spend money during those shopping trips on items that feature the ‘made in USA’ label. It feels great. You know that if all Americans spent just $66 on USA made items it would generate over 200,000 new jobs. You believe that you are making a difference by doing your part!

But then one day you learn that you have been deceived by manufacturers who are printing false ‘made in USA’ labels on their product.

How would you feel if this happened to you?

A recent CBS report announced that the United States government is now finding that companies are now making false claims and they are cracking down on them. Specifically with certifiers that issue "Made in USA" seals. One is even allowing partners to use the seal without checking that their products were in fact made in USA.

As the made in USA discussion gains momentum, it is important to know if the product you are purchasing is in fact 100% made in the USA. Manufacturers, certifiers, and consumers must all take proper actions to ensure they have a trustworthy shopping experience.

As a manufacturer, this is exactly why All American Clothing Co. offers traceability technology. Each made in USA jean comes with a 'Certificate of Authenticity' that includes a traceability number. Enter the number on our website and we will show you the USA workers who were involved in making your jean. We will even show you the farmers and mill who produced the cotton! From farm to closet, traceability supports over 12,000 American workers in our supply chain as it showcases how your jeans are made. This way All American Clothing Co. can offer an added proof that our product is as American as apple pie.

Watch ABC World News trace All American Jeans back to the workers who make them.

The American garment industry has lost -85% of it`s labor force since the early 1990s. In addition, just 2% of the clothing purchased in the United States in fact American made. The All American Clothing Co. hopes that their efforts with traceability technology can change the course of the American garment industry as the company continues to grow and support American workers.

Rainy weather led to challenging track conditions as the Judge Pulling Team took a ninth and sixth place finish respectively in a Lucas Oil Pro Pulling League event at the TS Outlaw Pull held in Franklin, KY.

With a lengthy season ahead, the team remains confident about producing better results and moving up in the point standings in 2014.

"Judge Pulling Team had a rough start to the 2014 season. Track conditions were not ideal and we had trouble navigating our tractor down the track. With a ninth and sixth place finish, we have a lot of ground to make up. It is a long season and we are confident that The iON Judge can make some headway into the top 5. We need to put together some good passes at the next three hooks." - Darrick Barga , The Judge Pulling Team

While the team is confident they will make up some ground in the points standings, it will not be an easy task.

"The e3 spark plug modified class is very competitive. There are a lot of tough tractors and drivers, anyone can win on any night. We are excited for the next Lucas Oil Champions Tour event at Wilmington and would like to thank team sponsors iON camera, E3 Sparkplugs, All American Clothing, and Ag Protect 1," Barga said.

The Judge Pulling Team currently holds 8th place in the points standings. They resume competition at the Clinton County Fairgrounds in Wilmington, OH Saturday June 14th.
