Instead, they bragged about using the “real” meat, which is true; they just use a tiny layer of it for the visible parts of the sandwich.
The MDF question gets tricky when it comes to certain veneered furniture.
Although I’m not convinced we’re in asbestos territory, even with the formaldehyde cancer risk, I do think that MDF is a ticking financial time bomb waiting to happen in terms of class action lawsuits, in cases where the consumer had no reasonable cause to believe that the furniture contained, or was primarily constructed out of, MDF. To be more blunt about it, I would not be comfortable with a large percentage of my net worth in any company that manufactured or distributed a lot of MDF products.
The bookcases are manufactured by one of the best names in the furniture business, with one of the best reputations for furniture quality.
I still can’t bring myself to pull the trigger on the purchase because the presence of MDF bothers me that much.
