Zest Garden is recalling 22,500 Wilson & Fisher bistro sets that were sold exclusively at Big Lots stores. The chairs can break during normal use, posing a fall and injury hazard to consumers.

The three-piece bistro set involved in this recall is white with a cut-out rose pattern. The set consists of a table and two chairs made of cast iron and aluminum. The table is about 26 inches high and measures about 24 inches in diameter. Each chair is about 33 inches high with an oval-shaped seat that measures about 19 inches long and about 16 inches wide.

The item number is XG-1015-23. The product measurements, the item number and 'Wilson & Fisher White Cast Bistro Set' and 'Made in China' are printed on labels located on the product's packaging.

The recalled bistro sets were sold at Big Lots stores nationwide November 2011 through May 2012.

Consumers should immediately stop using the set and return it to any Big Lots store for a full refund or store credit. For more information, contact Zest Garden toll-free at 800-893-3006.
