Down and Feather Council launches labeling program
January 31, 2006,
New York – The American Down and Feather Council has created a quality certification and labeling compliance program comprising an ADFC Seal of Approval based on products meeting testing standards set by the International Down and Feather Bureau (IDFB) as well as federal and state laws.
Government regulations specify that products labeled as down-filled must contain a minimum of 75% down cluster; items labeled as being filled with waterfowl feathers can include no more than 5% land fowl feathers; and those labeled as specifically goose or duck must contain 90% goose or duck plumage.
Only IDFB certified laboratories may be used when testing products for compliance. Complete information is available at: www.downandfeathercouncil.org.
