Is your Genuine Mahogany the “Real Deal”?
Recent discoveries reveal that major home improvement retailers and lumber companies have been passing off false Mahoganies as Genuine Mahogany.
A major retail home store has been involved in a class action suit for deceptive labeling of wood as “Mahogany.” The wood they sold under the “Mahogany” label was actually wood of the Eucalyptus variety (from the Fabaceae and Myrtaceae families), which is cheaper and lower in quality than Genuine Mahogany.
