    The Jay's are listed as a Synder's product.

    And the Waffies are listed as a Wise product. Is there a reason why you
    think they are not made at Wise?

    I've been puzzled about that too since I really do read labels. What does
    'distributed by' really mean or hide? Does it mean it is from Ballalohala
    wonga and they don't want me to know?
    Mr. Esther insisted that I choose a new toilet for the hall bathroom.
    Think that's easy? Indeed it is not. He's a 'buy American' guy and
    suggested I begin with American Standard. Wrong. American Standard is from
    Mexico. Eventually, I discovered Toto. Sounds like it's either from
    Dorothy not in Kansas anymore or sort of Japanese. Wrong. Toto is in
    Georgia, USA.
    Meanwhile, back to foods and distributed by - the coca cola I buy never
    tells me where it's made. I salute the Fritohistorian adventure. Stay with
    it. Polly

    I didn't know that either. We can't get that stuff here. I've only ever

    I first heard about Toto toilets from my BIL who told me it is a
    Japanese toilet. He is one who knows everything about everything.
    So I was suprised to see you say it's not Japanese. Looked at the
    website and it was indeed established in Japan in 1917. Having
    said that, I didn't know they were made in Georgia. Cool. I was
    considering whether to change out the toilet in my bathroom redo,
    perhaps I'll get a Toto.

    Depends what "buy American" means.

    For example Hyundai is definitely a Korean owned business but if you buy
    one in the US it was made in Alabama.

    Are you sure the phrase is Not "Assembled" in the USA?

    I use the term "Made" in the USA that includes a very high percentage of
    parts and "Assembled" in the USA. Many of the foreign owned plants in the
    US are assembled here, not made in the USA.

    Toto is definitely a Japanese owned company.

    You might want to get this version so you can have full service wash and
    dry:

    You are correct. And it also applies to Ford or Government Motors too.

    I'm hesitant to replace the toilet as I don't necessarily hear
    great things about the newer low flush jobbers. My BIL was
    having a problem in one of his buildings where someone kept
    clogging the men's room fixture and he finally replaced it
    with a Toto, problem solved.

    I don't think I've ever seen Toto, the commercial toilets I notice are
    usually marked Kohler.
