Questions over stability have prompted a chair recall from one retailer.

Ross Stores is voluntarily recalling its rattan arm chairs in response to reports that it may tip or slide backward, posing a fall hazard to consumers. The firm has received eight reports of minor injuries including scrapes and bruises.

The recalled chairs measure 48 inches high by 23 inches wide and feature SKU number 400119000982 printed on a hang tag. They were sold exclusively in Ross stores nationwide from May 2015 through June 2015 for about $60.

Ross believes that about 560 chairs are potentially hazardous.

Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled chairs and return them to any Ross store for a full refund.

Customers with questions about the recall should contact Ross at (877) 455-7677.
