Industry watchdog Truth In Advertising filed a complaint with the Federal Trade Commission on Tuesday, alleging that Walmart is deceiving customers with misleading claims about products "Made in America." This isn't the first time that the industry watchdog has taken aim at Walmart. In 2015, the Federal Trade Commission inquired into Walmart's "Made in America" claims after Truth In Advertising lodged a complaint. That probe was ultimately closed. In a statement on Wednesday, Walmart cited its huge investments in products "made, grown, sourced, or assembled" in the United States.
“We’ve seen some wonderful success stories based on our pledge and hope to contribute to further expansion of US manufacturing and job growth.”
