BEIJING, Jan. 24 (CNN) -- According to Taiwans China Times, Taiwans Consumer Protection Agency said on Jan. 23, 2019 that nearly 40% of the 18 toilet paper items sold on the Taiwan market were not up to standard. The most illegal items were water absorption in the first minute and dispersibility of the products.
According to reports, Taiwans Consumer Protection Agency purchased 12 items in physical stores and 6 items of toilet paper sold on the Internet. Seven items of toilet paper did not meet the quality test requirements. The main problem was that six items of water absorption in the first minute were not up to standard, which meant that more paper was needed to clean them. Another problem is that the number of sheets marked is different from the actual situation.
Dispersibility of four unqualified, that is, when toilet paper into the toilet, easily lead to toilet clogging. In addition, there are five violations of the Commodity Marking Law, including the use and preservation methods and matters needing attention not to be marked in accordance with the regulations, and the inconsistency of the information of the manufacturers and the specifications of the goods marked by the outsourcing and the commodity body.
According to statistics, among the unqualified toilet paper, the lowest price is 0.0354 yuan (NT$0.075) and the highest price is only 0.075 yuan, ranging from 35 yuan to 75 yuan per piece. On the contrary, all qualified products of quality items have the same quantity price between 80 yuan and 100 yuan, and the most expensive three-tier toilet paper has the price of 300 yuan, but the quality is relatively guaranteed.
One of the toilet paper brands responded that the sampling inspection was in April 2018, and the manufacturing date of the sampling products was April 2018. At present, the products on the shelves are fully qualified.
