LF Products has issued a recall for approximately 108,000 Sawyer swivel barstools that were sold exclusively at Bed Bath & Beyond stores nationwide and online from May 2012 through March 2016 (an additional 6,200 stools were sold in Canada).

Screws on the affected barstools can loosen, posing a fall hazard to the user.

The recalled barstools were sold in the following colors: black, white, distressed blue, and dark brown. The stools have a tan cushion and were available in two heights, 24 inches and 30 inches. LF Products is printed on a label affixed to each barstool.

To date, LF Products says that it has received 15 reports of loosened hardware resulting in four reports of injuries.

Consumers should immediately check to ensure that the hardware on their barstools is secure. Those with barstools that have loosened screws should download and review the revised assembly instructions at bedbathandbeyond.com/sawyerstoolinstructions, and then reassemble the barstools.

For additional information on this recall, customers can contact Bed Bath & Beyond by phone at (800) 462-3966.
