Microwaves are made in the United States by the American business Viking. In Oxford, Mississippi, the American business Whirlpool produces built-in microwaves, and Maytag, a subsidiary of Whirlpool, produces countertop units in the country under the Magic Chef brand.
Customers can find the product’s nation of origin on the box or label when shopping. The Federal Trade Commission has stringent guidelines that control how the origin of a product is declared.
Products containing the phrase “Made in the USA” or those labelled with less precise phrases like “Our products are made in America” need to be able to show that almost all of the component parts were made in the country and assembled there. Products with a “Assembled in America” marking are those that were put together in the United States using imported parts. On the other hand, if a product is made elsewhere, the country of origin must be indicated on the label, for example, “Made in China.”
By employing deceptive labelling, such as “Designed in the USA” or “Made in the USA with imported Parts,” some businesses do make an effort to get around the rules. Make sure the label is crystal clear about the product’s place of manufacture if you’re seeking for anything that is truly American-made.
