A few weeks ago I stopped at our local Kirby dealer to pick up some bags for my Ultimate G. After paying the $28.49 for 9 Micro-Magic bags I noticed that the bottom of the package read "Made in China from American made materials". WTH.
When I got home I looked at the old package and it clearly says "Made in the U.S.A"
How could this have happened? My American designed machine is a "globally sourced" machine, and the bags are "Made in China"
I called back to the dealer and advised that I would have given another $2-$3 for the bags if they were American, an was told that Kirby sold their equipment and all the bags are now "global". Mr. Buffett, is this how you re-energize America, by sending the business and jobs to China.
