Brown Jordan Services is recalling Hampton Bay Fall River swivel dining and lounge chairs. This recall affects approximately 265,000 chairs in the U.S. and an additional 16,000 sold in Canada.
The base of the chair can break during normal use, posing a fall hazard.
The recalled chairs are made of steel with a round swivel base and arm rests. The chairs either have a red or green cushion or are prepared for a custom slipcover with white liner fabric covering the cushions. Chairs were sold either in sets of two or as part of patio sets, which included accompanying patio tables. They were sold exclusively at Home Depot nationwide and online from October 2012 through January 2015 for about $200 for a set of two chairs to $550 for a seven-piece patio set.
The firm has received 410 reports of the swivel chairs breaking, including 16 reports of injuries, primarily bruises and abrasions resulting from falls.
Consumers should immediately stop using the chairs and contact the company for a free repair kit.
