The Customs & Excise Department today alerted consumers to potential hazards posed by several types of dining tables. Customs officers recently conducted spot checks on furniture retailers and sent samples of various models of dining tables to an accredited laboratory to test their strength, durability and safety as domestic tables in accordance with the British Standard. Three types of extendable wooden dining tables and a glass-top dining table failed the stability tests. During the tests, the wooden tables' tops extended and the tops of the glass table overturned, posing an injury hazard to users, particularly children. The department has seized six dining tables, and prohibited their supply on the market.
