The FTC have fined four companies for ignoring their earlier requests; Macy's was fined $475,000, Amazon fined $455,000, K-Mart fined $250,000, and Leon Max $80,000. Some retailers who avoided the fine have been labeling their products "100 percent rayon, made from bamboo".
The Competition Bureau in Canada that has been working with the FTC and last week announced that labels and advertising have been corrected on 450,000 textile items, as well as on 250 websites that sell clothing and textile products. Investigations by the FTC found that rayon derived from bamboo was no more natural or environmentally friendly than rayon derived from oak and beech trees.
