With the latest version of MDB Select the selected option is exploding HTML Special Characters.
<select class="col-9 mb-3 mdb-select md-form" id="item_category_id" name="item_category_id">
    <option value="10-VB7008">10-VB7008 - "M SERIES VITREOUS CHINA WHITE RECTANGLE UNDERMOUNT PORCELAIN SINK BOWL SIZE: 17 1\/2\"W X 13 5\/8\"D"</option>
    etc...
</select>

Hi leegellie, Thanks for reaching out! It probably has to do with the way material select is dealing with html sanitation - the "quote" character is the only one being escaped that way. Filed it as a bug. Best, Kuba

Try this: remove col-9 <select class="mdb-select md-form" id="item_category_id" name="item_category_id"> <option value="10-VB7008">10-VB7008 - "M SERIES VITREOUS CHINA WHITE RECTANGLE UNDERMOUNT PORCELAIN SINK BOWL SIZE: 17 1\/2\"W X 13 5\/8\"D"</option> etc... </select> </div>  
Please insert min. 20 characters.
