(ABC News) They are the $14 mittens being sold all over the country by the U.S. Olympic Committee, emblazoned with the patriotic message, “Go USA!”
They’re meant to raise money for the American athletes attending the Winter Olympic games that are less than a month away.
But on the tag inside those gloves: “Made in China.”
This comes less than two years after ABC World News and the Made in America team discovered the U.S. teams” uniforms worn at the opening ceremonies, made by Ralph Lauren, were produced in China. The report enraged Congress, prompting the USOC to promise to make all future team uniforms in the United States.
