They admit to selling something they don't know anything about?
I'd give it a wide berth then.
Basically you don't want to put softwood in your tank as the oils in the 
wood will leak out. Hardwood is suppose to be ok.

for more detail on choosing wood.

There is a number of foreign countries selling bark stripped off trees or
