Williams-Sonoma Will Pay Record $3.17 Million Civil Penalty for Violating FTC "Made in USA" Order


Based upon a complaint filed by the Department of Justice on 04/22/2024, Williams-Sonoma has agreed to a settlement that requires them to pay a record $3.17 Million for repeated violations of a 2020 order by the Federal Trade Commission (FTC). The prior order from 2020 required the company to be truthful regarding the origin of its goods and to cease the false advertising of foreign-made products as being “Made in USA.” According to FTC Chair Lina M Kahn, “Williams-Sonoma’s deception misled consumers and harmed honest American businesses. Today’s record-setting civil penalty makes clear that firms committing Made-in-USA fraud will not get a free pass.”
