Lorex, "Made in China and/or Vietnam," Violates US Customs Law

By IPVM, Published Nov 23, 2021, 10:06am EST (Info+)

Lorex fixed one US law violation but replaced it with another, IPVM has verified, after Costco/Dahua/Lorex responded to IPVM's report on product packages with no country of origin by placing "Made in China and/or Vietnam" stickers on its kits sold at Costco, a violation of the US Tariff Act.
