Four New York companies - Underground Sports Inc., Hockey Underground Inc., Ipuck Inc., and Ipuck Hockey Inc - trading as Patriot Puck made an own-goal when they advertised hockey pucks on the Patriot Puck website and elsewhere online as "Made in America," "Proudly Made in the USA," "100% American Made!" and "The only American Made Hockey Puck!" The company even went so far as to wrap its pucks in an image of the American flag. The reality, according to the FTC, is that Patriot Puck's products are wholly imported from China. Patriot Puck and its subsidiaries imported more than 400,000 standard-weight pucks from China since 2016.
