Hong Kong products imported to the United States must now be labeled as “Made in China”:

“Products produced in Hong Kong and imported to the United States must be labeled “Made in China” instead of Made in Hong Kong,’ according to a notice from U.S. Customs and Border Protection posted on the Federal Register Tuesday. Shippers will have a transition period until Sept. 25 to comply, after which they will face a duty of 10% on the improperly labeled cargo.”

P.S.
