You may be hosting a patriotic barbecue for the Fourth of July on Friday, but are the BBQ foods you’re serving made in the USA?

USA Today reports that many patriotic items marketed for America’s birthday are not actually made in America. Instead of U.S.-made products, many are choosing lower-priced items made outside of the country, where costs are kept down by cheap foreign labor and offshore manufacturing practices.

Roger Simmermaker, author of “Home Americans Can Buy American: The Power of Consumer Patriotism,” told the paper that Independence Day is a great opportunity to take advantage of using products made in the United States.

"Buying American is about more than just American-made products and U.S. jobs," he told USA Today. "We're less of an independent country to the extent that we rely on other nations to supply our wants and needs."

So if you’re looking to “buy American” this Fourth of July, here are Independence Day barbecue food staples that are union-made-in-America, according to Labor 411. (Union-made refers to companies that “provide fair wages, safe working conditions and access to health care,” according to the website.)
