FTC Says Ohio Company Falsely Labeled Its Imported Mattress Pads as Made in USA

The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) continues to take action against companies that deceive consumers by labeling imported products as Made in America.

The FTC issued a proposed settlement on Aug. 30 against Electrowarmth Products LLC and owner Daniel W. Grindle for claiming that the company’s headed mattress pads were Made in the USA when they are actually manufactured in China.
