All China Products - We Are Being Poisoned

I noticed years ago when I bought Rockport boots. I was a security officer and Rockports had been used and approved by the company as great footware.
Bought a pair about $60.00 on sale. They were comfortable and lasted for years. They were made in the UK.
When I needed another pair they were not sold at the same store, but after months I did find a store that sold them, but at a cost of almost $100.00.
After wearing them for less than a week I started feeling ill.
Soon after my feet swelled up to the point where I could not fit into any of my shoes and that included the boots.
On closer look at the label I found that the boots did not say made in the UK and that the materials were not leather but a product that I was highly allergic to.
I started reading labels on most of the footware in different stores, than other products and goods.
The warnings were slow to come and as of this day American companies still allow dangerous products to be sold in America.
These dangerous products all come from China and those who are suppose to protect us were not and are not stopping them from being put on the store shelves.
Warning !!!!! If it is not made in America, DO NOT BUY IT !!!!!

I agree but it's hard to find products "made in America".
I have a feeling this will slowly start to change as manufacturing and even "Call Center Support" is slowly returned to the US.

It can't come soon enough.

What exactly is this material that you are highly allergic to?

Were these advertised to be leather? It may be that you are allergic to something that few others are not.

If people are going to restrict themselves to "Made in America", they will have a tough road.

Not as hard as you think to find USA items. Just go to madeinusa.org . I sure there are other sites similar.
