US FTC questions BedHead's compliance with regulations

The US Federal Trade Commission (FTC) recently questioned whether Komar, Inc.'s marketing materials that promoted BedHead Pajamas complied with the Textile Products Information Act and its implementing rules. BedHead failed to include country-of-origin information and disclose that certain products were made from imported fabrics, FTC said in a letter.

Companies that are subject to the Textile Act are subject to mandatory country-of-original labelling requirements, regardless of whether the products are made in the United States. The act also requires marketers to disclose product origin in mail order advertising, which includes websites.

Essentially, materials must include a clear and conspicuous statement about whether a product was made in the United States, imported, or both, according to information posted on the FTC website.
