Chairs prone to breaking recalled

Posted on December 8, 2015 2:58 pm under Product Liability

Last December 2, Cost Plus World Market recalled approximately 2,700 units of their high-back upholstered reading chairs that are prone to bending and breaking, posing fall and injury hazards to the consumers as the front legs of the chairs do not have support blocks.

Eight reports of the front chair legs bending or breaking were received by the company, with one injury report after the consumer fell out of the chair.

The recalled product has a black and white floral print and four wooden legs. The SKU number printed on a UPC sticker on the underside of the chair is 473747. The recalled chairs were sold nationwide by Cost Plus World Market, World Market, and online at worldmarket.com.

Consumers are encouraged to stop using the chairs and inspect the product. Chairs without support blocks on the front legs may be returned to the store for a free exchange.
