I realize I'm replying to an older post and I know manufacturing/outsourcing can change pretty fast, so....
The last National wheel bearings purchased by me were front wheel bearings for a Taurus and they were purchased locally. The first box I opened was American-made and the finish on the assembly was beautiful. The second box I opened was made in Korea and, compared to the first one, the finish was terrible. After I set them on the parts counter side-by-side, I could see that the Korean bearing was assembled wrong and was defective right out of the box. The parts man agreed with me and ordered me another one. Of course, it too was made in Korea but at least it was assembled properly. The Korean-made bearing lasted all of about 6 months. I exercised the warranty on it and got a replacement, but the owner traded the car a few months later, so I can't comment on how long the replacement bearing lasted.

Your right! National it seems is no longer making hubs in the USA, the Moog is mostly Chinese from what i have seen.

I guess they were reboxing NOS for awhile. Too bad they were a good company.

This is mostly accurate. Only wholly imported items are required to have COO labeling.

But it's not quite as simple as saying "If it's made in USA, then coo label/stamp is not required." There are lots of classes of products that aren't fully imported, but don't meet the "made in the USA" labeling requirements.

Long story short, items that are assembled in the US, partially processed in the US, made in the USA, etc., are not required to have COO labeling. Companies often choose to include the labeling, but they don't have to.
