Gillette deceptive ‘made in USA’ claims

MADISON, CONN, Jan. 23, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Despite a national advertising campaign showcasing patriotic imagery, highlighting its Boston headquarters, and heavily promoting its “Made in Boston” heritage, ad watchdog truthinadvertising.org (TINA.org) found that Gillette actually only makes a couple of its blades in the U.S.

The rest of Gillette’s blades and razors, among dozens of other products purchased and examined by TINA.org, are either wholly or partially made in foreign countries, according to origin information on product packaging. Even the blades that Gillette makes in Boston include handles that are made in Poland and Mexico.

...

“Patriotism is an incredibly effective marketing tool because many consumers are drawn to U.S.-made products,” said TINA.org Executive Director Bonnie Patten. “Because patriotism sells, if Gillette is permitted to proceed with its false and deceptive Made in the USA marketing campaign, not only will consumers who prefer American-made products continue to be misled, honest companies that follow the law will also lose out.”

They only have to snap on one little piece to be able to claim "assembled in America".
