Analyzing and processing the data of product quality safety supervision and spot check is the key to maintain healthy and sustainable development of products, because the data sources are extensive. In view of the ambiguity of product names in the data, a method based on fusion feature similarity is proposed, which disambiguates product names using features such as manufacturer name-related information, product-related information, topic-related information, and so on. Experiment results show that the proposed method is effective for product name disambiguation.
