Substandard furniture

Six pieces of furniture manufactured by Muji (Shanghai) and two made by IKEA China based in Shanghai have failed quality tests, according to the Beijing market watchdog website. The materials of the Muji samples did not match the labels. A chair supposedly  made of walnut, as was listed on the label, turned out to be plywood. A wooden frame which should have been made of white oak was fiberboard. Two IKEA items for children were substandard, with gaps in drawers that children’s fingers may get stuck in. The administration has ordered the companies to take the products off the shelves.
