Falling Chandeliers Subject to Recall from Currey & Company
The company has received two reports of incident, including one chandelier falling
Currey & Company is issuing a recall for chandeliers that pose a safety threat to consumers.
The manufacturer is recalling one model of its eight-light crystal chandelier. The loop at the top of the chandelier can break, causing the chandelier to fall, posing an impact injury hazard.
About 1,000 chandeliers are included in the recall.
The company has received two reports of the loop breaking, including one report of the chandelier falling. No injuries in connection with this recall have been reported to date.
The recalled chandeliers are silver with crystal ornaments and eight candle-shaped lights. The loop at the top of the chandelier is made of zinc or steel. Model number 093682 can be found on the inside of the canopy and on the outside of the original carton.
Consumers could purchase the chandeliers at Ethan Allen Design Centers nationwide from October 2007 through January 2016 for about $2,500.
Owners should prevent people from walking underneath the recalled chandeliers. Ethan Allen will contact consumers directly and arrange for an Ethan Allen service technician to inspect the product. If the loop is made of zinc, the loop will be replaced by a certified electrician free of charge. If it is made of steel, no repair will be necessary.
Customers with questions about this recall can contact Ethan Allen at (877) 848-4952.
