Reuters reports China’s annual consumer rights day TV show turned its spotlight on US sports brand Nike for misleading advertising and Japanese brand Muji for selling food products allegedly sourced from part of Japan affected by radiation. The state-run China Central Television (CCTV) show, known as 315, said Nike had misled consumers over high-tech air cushions in some of its “Hyperdunk” basketball shoes. The two-hour show, a mix of undercover reports and song-and-dance, also highlighted Japanese brands including Muji, owned by Ryohin Keikaku, which it said sold food products in China from an area of Tokyo where high levels of radiation were detected in 2015. A Ryohin Keikaku spokesman denied the reports on Thursday, while Nike said it already offered compensation to consumers over the mistake.
