Chinese businessmen know that American consumers don't prefer products 'Made in China ', so they don't show from which country it originates any longer. 

*However, you may now refer to the barcode.  Remember if the first 3 digits are in the range 690-695, then it is Made in China ..

It is our human right to know, but its not the government's job to educate the public, just to rake in the taxes.
 
Therefore, we have to protect ourselves & make everyone aware
