I guess the question is, who owns the rights to description (text).
If this description of the product provided by manufacture, you probably can use that. I would suggest to check with product manufacture on this.

If description is created by your competitor, I would not copy that. This can be easily noticed and will raise trust issue with your business.

If you will make your product's content like it then you will be ready for Google penalty on your website beacuse you will paste copyied content onyour website and search engines hate it.
