I noticed that all my Leviton data stuff in the past few months is now made in the USA vs Mexico and China.

It's part of some big marketing campaign to promote American made products with that symbol, not limited to just Leviton.

I agree, but unfortunately the number of products to which that label can be applied is pretty small these days.

It's nice to see they are now again made here and brought quality back to their devices, I think around mid 05' is when they really hit their all time low in crappy devices.
