According to a Chinese government study, about one-fifth of products sold in the country didn't meet China's own quality standards, according to the Wall Street Journal.

A study by China's General Administration of Quality Supervision, Inspection and Quarantine identified 26 product categories to measure, including bottled water, canned fruit, dried fish, linens, grass-cutting equipment and other goods.

In the first six months of 2007, the agency reviewed 114 types of products made by more than 6,300 companies and found that 19.1 percent of them were substandard, according to a statement on the administration's Web site.

Of course, this report lends credence to the concerns that have surfaced as products from China are being scrutinized following contaminated pet food, toothpaste, seafood and more.
