Reading Chair with Fragile Front Legs Recalled by Cost Plus

December 3, 2015

A potentially unsteady chair is subject to a recall, per an announcement by the manufacturer.

Cost Plus Management Services is recalling about 2,700 reading chairs after received reports that the front legs can bend and break, posing a fall hazard to the user. These chairs were manufactured without front leg support blocks.

This recall involves high-back upholstered reading chairs sold in a black and white floral print. The chairs are 37inches tall by 30 inches wide, and have four wooden legs with the front two on casters. SKU number 473747 is printed on a UPC sticker affixed to the underside of the chair.

These items could be purchased at Cost Plus World Market and World Market stores nationwide from January 2015 through September 2015 for about $300.

Cost Plus World Market has received eight reports of front chair legs bending or breaking, including one report of an injury when a consumer fell out of the chair.

Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled chairs and inspect the front legs for support blocks. Chairs without support blocks can be returned to any Cost Plus World Market for a free exchange. Consumers should contact Cost Plus World Market for instructions on how to inspect the chair legs for support blocks.

Customers with questions about the recall can contact the company at (877) 967-5362.
