The outside of the mittens says, “Go USA.” The insides say, “Made in China.”

Less than two years after being criticized for having the U.S. Olympic team’s uniforms made in China, the U.S. Olympic Committee has another wardrobe malfunction on its hands.

The red-white-and-blue mittens it’s selling to raise funds for winter athletes were produced in China.

It says so right on the tag on the inside.

The USOC is charging $14 a pair. Spokesman Patrick Sandusky said the “official” mittens being worn by the athletes are made in the USA and are also available to the public for $95 a pair.

But the federation was going for a lower price point for its fundraiser. Sandusky said: “We wanted to create a fundraising opportunity where almost anyone could support Team USA.”
