From the anti France campaign era in 2003 - (mentioned on the official site, too)
The makers of French's Mustard made the following recent statement:
We at the French's Company wish to put an end to statements that our product is manufactured in France. There is no relationship, nor has there ever been a relationship, between our mustard and the country of France. Indeed, our mustard is manufactured in Rochester, NY.
The only thing we have in common is that we are both yellow. - the punch line was added by joke writers, collected at sites like this
