Default Made in Japan?

I just bought 200 of each Fairchild KSC1845F/KSA992F from RS. On the bags it says "made in Japan". I thougt that Fairchild took over when they made the Japan made 2SA/2SC parts obsolete? Anyone know whats going on?

So why can't they still make parts in a Japan factory?

There are semiconductor fabs all over the world - well, in various countries anyway.

There are far more packaging and test plants around the world. It is their location that appears on the label, not the fab
