Whiteside Machine Company
The FTC said in a recent closing letter to the company, “although Whiteside performs some manufacturing functions in the United States, many of its products contain significant imported components.”
Not to bore you to death with bureaucratic terminology — that will be our one and only router pun for the evening — but for a product to be marketed as “Made in the U.S.A.,” the FTC’s Made in USA standard requires that it be “all or virtually all ” made here. Anything less just isn’t groovy with the FTC (sorry, we couldn’t help ourselves).
