I am getting some special characters appended in the description. How do I get rid of it ?

 Please make sure the opening and closing CDATA tags are present. If the closing tags are missing, you may see special characters.

 Lets say, I listed an item-110100291005 in sandbox which has " ]]" appended at the end of the description.

To resolve this issue, this is what you can do.

1. Execute a GetItem api call and see the response. In this case for item-110100291005, in the GetItem api response you will see :

  <Description>2 Secure zipped compartments<br/>Belt loop attached<br/>Detachable shoulder strap<br/>Made from water resistant Neopropene The Travel Pod is ideal for a camera, MP3 player, sunglasses and more.&nbsp;The travel pod has two secure zipped compartments allowing you to store a range of items in the pouch.&nbsp;The travel pod comes with a belt loop and a detachable shoulder strap.&nbsp;The travel pod is made of high quality and water resistant Neopropene and is available in black.&nbsp; &#093;&#093;</Description>

2. Note the special characters added at the end of the Description " &#093;&#093;" .

You will have to remove these characters from the description to get rid of "]]".
