Re: Fake BGE?

I know that I had some older BG organics that did not have the tag on the back. It's possible that these might just be an older version.

Now that you mentioned that, the tags are worded differently.

My authentic says:
"Fasten diaper tabs to laundry tabs. Use 1/4 of manufacturer's recommended amount of additive free detergent. Wash cold-Wash hot-Double rinse-Dry Warm. No laundry additives, softeners, or rash creams.

Outer: 100% Polyester

*has symbols*

The only difference between my two blossom BGE's are one says Made in U.S.A, everything else is worded the same.

I could very well be wrong, but weren't they once upon a time made in USA? Like when they first started?

I got on the BG website and they started in Denver, then expanded to Egypt. The site says, "Today, bumGenius branded products are concientiously produced in the United States and in Egypt."

OP I think they are just older. I remember people saying that back in the day there was controversy about made in Egypt vs made in USA, and the cotton being different.

I"m guessing that it is just an older version..... I know there was variations of the color inner depending on where made.

Re: Fake BGE?

Also I think the organic cotton lightens with washing- I have flip organics that are nearly white.

Re: Fake BGE?

i'm not sure if they are older or fake or any of that, but they are definitely not as discribed. she said they picture looked different and they were sold as NWOT, so i would file with PP. i would first contact the seller tho and see if they could make it right or explain what's going on.
