No, I think you will find that lots of people are well aware of where most things are produced,
I agree because many Americans in my shop pick things up and look for a sticker on the bottom/on the packaging to see where it was made. They do this because they are looking for domestic products.
The problem is that the domestic product can be more more expensive, for example a coffee cup made in China or Taiwan will sell for $5.00 or so, but one made in the US will start at about 8 or 9 dollars. But if you wash the US made coffee cup in the dishwasher it will come out looking like it did when it went in, and isn't as likely to test positive for lead!
Last year, in my store we had a recall on costume jewelry because it arrived with stickers "made in China" and "may contain lead". How idiotic!
There was recently an email going around regarding rubber sandals being sold at Wal-Mart that were made in China and causing lesions on the area of the feet that came into contact with the rubber straps. The email was warning others not to purchase any China-made sandals. I would attach the pics here, but they are very disgusting to see.
So yeah, people DO CARE where things are made!
