  • Utah-based company Lions Not Sheep and its owner Sean Whalen are facing a $211,335 fine after the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) accused them of replacing their products’ "Made in China" labels with "Made in the USA" labels.
  • The complaint, which was first filed in May, also ordered Whalen and his company to “stop making bogus Made in USA claims” and “come clean about foreign production.”
  • “Companies that slap phony Made in USA labels on imported goods are cheating their customers and undercutting honest businesses, and we will hold those companies and their executives accountable for their misconduct,” Sam Levine, the director of the FTC’s Bureau of Consumer Protection, said.
  • Lions Not Sheep is known for promoting the Second Amendment and Donald Trump through its clothing line sold on Amazon and Etsy and marketed heavily on social media.
