    @treeesa Anderson used to be made from American prisoners(which may piss some ppl off). I wasn't aware or have heard it's made in China at all.

    Now you're getting it! Finally someone get's it!!!

    Good job doing the research and asking the questions so many people don't bother to ask (for various reasons) until it's too late.

    The truth of the matter is, that most, if not ALL of the "mass production" people found themselves outsourcing to China in order to win the race to the bottom in the "we have the lowest price" war. (although I'm sure many weren't as motivated by the idea of offering low price as they were in increasing profit margins).

    What they didn't realize, was that those same producers were making product for themselves as well, so the irony is that they were competing with their own suppliers.

    There are so many holes in the stories of these people, I've given up trying to sort out the facts... they've put Made in USA labels on products, simply because they were "brought in" and BOXED here... or perhaps had a final coat of finish applied. That is their concept of legitimacy.

    I could go on for pages... lol

    @Ultimate... by the way, the product you mention wasn't made by American prisoners... but it was "hand-scraped" by them (poorly, I might add).

    I know because it was 2 of my "stolen" employees and several "stolen" hand-scrapers that were flown from L.A. back to Georgia or South Carolina or wherever... to teach the inmates how we did it. From what I was told later on, they had a problem with "turnover", (as well as quality & consistency) because those guys were being paid some ridiculously low amount of money... like 25 or 50 cents an hour (applied to their commissary accounts) and they'd work a day, maybe two, & say "screw this, I ain't working THIS hard"... haha

    So I wouldn't be at all surprised to find out that the "system" of 12-15 years ago was relocated to China in order to find labor at even LOWER prices currently, than the 50 cents an hour a decade+ ago.

    Bottom line... nowadays I can only attest to the origin & quality of a product I'm 100% certain of... OURS. Anything else is just hearsay.
