The Wall Street Journal’s article on hanging shelf racks, shelves, and brackets featured a photo of a shelf bracket on a kitchen corner shelf, which the Wall Street J said was in “very poor condition” with a hole in the top that looked like “a large hole in a piece of glass.”
A photo of the shelf bracket showed that the hole was “not even visible.”
The Journal said it “can’t confirm that the picture is authentic,” but noted that it said it had seen similar images online and in the media.
“There are several products on the market today that feature hanging shelves brackets.
It is an easy way to add additional shelf space in a kitchen, so it is important to know where to shop,” the article said.
A Google search of the word “Hanging shelf bracket” on Amazon returned several listings for the term hanging shelf, but none matched the article’s description.
A spokeswoman for the brand said she could not comment on whether a product was on sale.
In its report, the Journal said the product it saw on Amazon was actually “a brand new shelf bracket.”
She did not provide any details about its condition.
The article’s photographer also said in the article that the product was “a new shelf rack,” which he said was also in “poor condition.”
The WSJ article also said the item was “in poor condition,” but did not specify what condition.
