Some products are just synonymous with America. But these days, your grandmother's apple pie might be just about the only product that's actually still made here.
Over the past couple of decades, a number of brands have outsourced the production of some of America's most iconic products to cut down on manufacturing costs. Even America's greatest past time, baseball, is played with balls stitched together in Costa Rica.
It's not just nostalgia that is lost when a company moves its production overseas -- jobs are often sacrificed as well. And while foreign-produced goods may be cheaper, products with the once-common label "Made in the U.S.A." are now considered luxury and are often over-priced, The Huffington Post reported last September.
Here's a round-up of classically American products that are manufactured overseas:
Rawlings baseballs, which are the official balls of the MLB, are <a href="http://www.taipeitimes.com/News/bizfocus/archives/2010/03/28/2003469097">handmade in Costa Rica</a>. Up to 2.4 million balls are made each year.
