I don't know if anyone has seen this e-mail that is going around, but here are some places to buy made in USA. If you know of more... add it to the string.

Here is the message I got, I looked them all up before posting and they are legit:

"Send this e-mail to everyone who might be interested in keeping manufacturing and other jobs in USA. By continuing to buy USA made products, you can help save
jobs from going overseas.

Below are places that people have found Made in USA products and the item they found:
Add more if you wish before passing this on... but make sure you pass it on.

Not made in the US:

Hamburger. Seems that major beef houses do not want to put a label describing where all the beef in the package comes from. The paper today noted that it comes from outside the US. Local farmers are all for it.

I believe the paper said the current administration killed the bill requiring labels to say where the beef in the package of hamburger came from.

Keep in mind that what is made in the USA today will not neccesarily be tomorrow. This is especially true at Walmart where they buy from whoever they get the best price from when they order.

I guess we just need to keep reading the labels!
