Substandard steel, floor tiles seized in Caloocan shops
The Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) has confiscated P700,000 worth of uncertified and substandard steel bars, angle bars and ceramic tiles from hardware stores on Quirino Highway in Caloocan City. In a statement, the DTI said it confiscated early this week 10,181 pieces of these products from WDL Enterprises and Xtreme Unite Steel Inc. which were issued violation notices for selling uncertified and substandard construction materials. The notices required the two firms to appear before the DTI to air their side within 48 hours. Victorio Mario A. Dimagiba, officer in charge of the DTI Consumer Protection Group, said they would file a complaint against the retailers within the week. The confiscated materials would be used as evidence for the administrative cases to be filed against the retailers, manufacturers and importers, he added. Amy R. Remo
