A new bill would make online sellers and app stores post their products’ origin countries

Florida Senator Rick Scott has introduced a bill that would make online retailers — including app stores — prominently list every product’s country of origin. According to Scott, it’s partly addressing recent privacy controversy over the Russia-based photo app FaceApp. It’s also supposed to push consumers away from certain foreign goods. “There are nations around the world, like China, that are trying to compete with America,” said Scott in a statement. “By buying products made by our adversaries, we are sending them money without a second thought.”
