(1) google's structured-data-testing-tool does not check
for all google-shopping policies with respect to microdata.


(2) that site is returning a comma as a decimal-mark --
regardless of what the code that was posted may be.


if the website landing-page data is auto-generated then, the best likely
course would be to contact whoever is maintaining the website to be

certain all landing-page data adheres to all google-shopping policies.


for example, all submitted data must be identical for all users and cannot
change based on where the user may be physically located, ip-address,

user-agent, or any other user-identifiable information -- that is not allowed.


a crawl of the site seems to return a comma within a price and is not allowed;
e.g. line 937:
<meta itemprop="price" content="17,14"/>


the decimal-mark within structured-data must be an ascii full-stop/period
regardless of who, how, or in what context, the page has been requested.
