NPD Furniture is recalling a line of dining chairs because the legs can break unexpectedly.

About 250 Abby Dining Chairs are implicated in the recall which was issued after the company received four customer complaints of breaking chair legs.

The Abby Dining Chair has dark brown wooden legs with seat and back upholstery in either gray or green fabric with black or white edge piping. The SKU number 428136-CS-C or 428136-GS-C is printed on the product packaging. There are no identifying labels on the product itself.

They were sold at various home furnishing retailers nationwide between July 2014 and November 2014 for about $200.

Consumers should immediately stop using the product and contact NPD Furniture for a full refund.

NPD Furniture can be contacted at (800) 976-8188.
