Labeling -- clothing and food
Federal law requires labeling on clothing. Manufacturers must specify what materials the clothing contains and include instructions on the care and cleaning of the clothing.
If you have followed the washing / dry cleaning instructions, and the item becomes damaged as a result, return the item to the retailer and ask for an exchange or refund. If the retailer won’t cooperate, ask for the manufacturer’s name and address and write to them. Complaints may also be filed online with the Federal Trade Commission.

Under Connecticut law, packaged food sold in the state must be labeled in accordance with the Federal Food Drug and Cosmetic Act, the Federal Fair Packaging and Labeling Act, and the Uniform Packaging and Labeling Regulation as adopted by the National Conference of Weights and Measures.
