H-E-B has issued a recall of roughly 600 Brazos Embossed Star Chairs due to a fall hazard.

Weld defects may cause the armrest to detach from the base, potentially causing consumers sitting in the chair to fall.

The affected chairs are made of brown metal with welded construction and an embossed star design located on the chair back. The following product identification information is printed on the white hangtag: UPC 8502430906 and item code number 194781. The chairs are 24 inches wide and 33.5 inches high.

The recalled items were sold exclusively at H-E-B stores in Texas from February 2016 through September 2016 for approximately $60.

The company has received one report of the armrest detaching from the base to date, though there have not been any injuries reported.

Consumers are urged to stop using the affected chairs right away and to return them to the place of purchase to receive a full refund.

Consumers with questions can reach H-E-B at (800) 432-3113.
