Fur Products Labeling Act Law and Legal Definition
The Fur Products Labeling Act refers to an Act that prohibits misbranding and false advertising of fur products, and requires labeling of most fur products.
The Fur Act requires fur manufacturers, dealers, and retailers to place labels on products made entirely or partly of fur disclosing:
a. the animal's name as provided in the Name Guide;
b. the presence of any used, bleached, dyed, or otherwise artificially colored fur;
c. that the garment is composed of paws, tails, bellies, or waste fur, if that is the case;
d. the name or Registered Identification Number of the manufacturer or other party responsible for the garment; and
e. the garment's country of origin.
The term fur under the Act means any animal skin or part thereof with hair, fleece, or fur fibers attached thereto, either in its raw or processed state, but shall not include such skins as are to be converted into leather or which in processing shall have the hair, fleece, or fur fiber completely removed.[15 USCS § 69].
