Seal of the Federal Trade Commission
Below quote is from the Federal Trade Commission web site.

"The Internet is connecting advertisers and marketers to customers from Boston to Bali with text, interactive graphics, video and audio. If you're thinking about advertising on the Internet, remember that many of the same rules that apply to other forms of advertising apply to electronic marketing. These rules and guidelines protect businesses and consumers - and help maintain the credibility of the Internet as an advertising medium. The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) has prepared this guide to give you an overview of some of the laws it enforces."

Wal-Mart Stores Inc. CEO Mike Duke (retired) interviewed.
At 1 minute and 10 seconds into this interview is where Walmart's CEO from 2009 to 2013 Mike Duke clearly states that Walmart does not "track" or "publish" the source of product (aka country of origin) information for the public to review.

"It is not something that we can track. The source of product, the factory, is not something that we publish."  -  CEO Mike Duke

As per the Federal Trade Commission web site ...    "The Textile and Wool Acts require you to disclose country of origin information in catalogs and other mail order advertising and in Internet ads that sell textile and wool products. The description of each advertised item must include a statement that it was made in the U.S.A., imported or both. A general statement in your ads that all products are either made in the U.S.A. or imported is not adequate."!
Alexander Hamilton
"Not only the wealth, but the independence and security of a country, appear to be materially connected with the prosperity of manufacturers. Every nation ... ought to endeavor to possess within itself all the essentials of a national supply. They comprise the means of subsistence, habitation, clothing and defense ... The expediency of encouraging manufactures in the United States, which was not long since deemed very questionable, appears at this time to be pretty generally admitted."
