La-Z-Boy is recalling about 2,600 recliners following multiple reports that they can tip forward.

When reclined, the PowerReclineXRw can tip forward if the user gets up without bringing the chair back to an upright position.

The recalled power reclining furniture involves three series of the PowerReclineXRw: P16, 32P and 39P. The P16 series is a single-seat recliner; the 32P series is a loveseat recliner; and the 39P series is a loveseat with a middle console.

The series and style numbers are printed on a white label stapled to the front rail behind the leg rest or the underside of the leg rest. The first three characters of the number will be P16, 32P or 39P, followed by the style number. A full list of recalled style numbers can be found on the Consumer Product Safety Commission website.

They were sold at La-Z-Boy Furniture Gallery stores and independent furniture stores nationwide from January 2015 through March 2015 for $600 to $4300.

Consumers should stop using the chair and contact the local dealer at which the chair was purchased for a refund or a repair. A service technician will schedule a time to come to the consumer's home and install a new part.
