Litigation news: The Made in the USA Foundation has just filed suit against footed pajama company Jumpin Jammerz, alleging failure to comply with federal labeling laws requiring disclosure of the country of origin in its catalog advertising in Skymall magazine. Despite a direct appeal to the company, and a promise by Jumpin Jammerz to begin compliance, Jumpin Jammerz continued to advertise in violation of the Textile Products Identification Act (15 U.S.C. Section 70).
Phoenix-based Skymall was also named as a defendant in the case. The Foundation contends Skymall has a responsibility to review compliance of ads prior to publication.
The Foundation supported federal legislation that informs consumers about country of origin. Made in the USA seeks to enforce these laws so that consumers can make informed decisions.
