It is reported that BAIC conducted a spot check on paper goods like paper towels, sanitary napkins, baby diapers, and paper cups. The result shows that two kinds of paper towels, 26 kinds of sanitary napkins, one kind of baby diapers, and six kinds of paper cups are substandard. The substandard goods are said to include Xiao Bao Bei brand facial tissues and a disposable paper cup marked with Beijing Xinjin Youfa Technology Company sold by the MerryMart Supermarket, two types of paper cups sold by Little Sheep Supermarket No. 59 Store, one kind of sanitary napkin sold by Beijing Shuitun Agriculture & Byproduct Wholesale Market with the brand of Ruide, and three types of sanitary napkins sold by Beijing Longhua Jingyue Shopping Center.
