Clothes Call: FTC Reviews Wool Products Labeling Rules
As part of a regular review of its rules and guides, the Federal Trade Commission ("FTC") is currently focusing on its "Wool Products Labeling Rules" ("Wool Rules" or "Rules"). The Wool Rules, which apply to any manufacturer, distributor, or labeler of wool products, were last modified in the year 2000. Under the current Rules, advertisements for wool products in mail order catalogs and mail order promotional materials "shall contain a clear and conspicuous statement that the product was either made in U.S.A., imported, or both." The Rules also contain a long list of labeling requirements, including requirements governing the proper use of "recycled wool," "cotton," "rayon," "silk," "linen," "acetate," "nylon," "polyester," "Alpaca," "Llama," "Camel," "all," "100%," "virgin," and "new."
The FTC now seeks public comment on whether there is a continuing need for the Wool Rules, whether the Wool Rules provide benefits to consumers, and what burdens the rules place on business. Written comments must be submitted by March 26, 2012.
