WASHINGTON (Reuters) – The U.S. Commerce Department on Wednesday said it had determined Chinese-made mattresses and stainless steel beer kegs are being dumped in the U.S. market at less than fair value and will be hit with preliminary anti-dumping duties.
The Commerce Department also said it was imposing preliminary duties on German and Mexican-made stainless steel kegs. The government is imposing duties of up to 79.7% on Chinese-made kegs and up to 1,731% on mattresses. Major U.S. mattress firms had petitioned for relief including Serta Simmons Bedding LLC and Tempur Sealy International Inc, while the American Keg Co had also sought relief.
