Why Chinese plastic???
Or what?
Labeled thus.

I'd guess their suppliers cut corners, not knowing the staining potential of their plastic blend.

Plasticizers are the ingredients that make plastics malleable or flexible. I've not seen this result from older domestic plastics.

It's similar to the dry "crocking" that happens to fabrics and carpet, usually due to fugitive dyes or related issues. Crocking was a big issues on 70's carpet in bright deep colors installed adjacent to white carpets.
