Fox News anchor Bill Hemmer quickly ordered and received his free, at-home COVID test provided by the Biden administration. Just one small thing —like, fine print small.
“Hemmer, co-host of ‘America’s Newsroom,’ praised the federal government and the United States Postal Service (USPS) for getting the tests out quickly after he and many other Americans put in the request last week for free tests. But he noted when he turned the test package over the ‘fine print’ revealed the tests were manufactured in China,” Fox reports.
“I got mine yesterday,” Hemmer said, holding up the orange kit. “All four of them came. Congrats U.S. government. U.S. Postal Service did a great job. Got my four tests. And on the back of the fine print, Dana, it is made in China.”
The 15-minute rapid antigen tests are made by iHealth Labs Inc. And while the company is headquartered in Sunnyvale, CA, the tests are actually manufactured in China.
“iHealth is a unit of the Chinese company Andon Health Co. Ltd., according to Reuters. It was awarded a $1.275 billion contract for COVID-19 rapid tests with the U.S. government on Jan. 13, according to the Defense.gov website,” Fox reports.
