World Market is recalling a line of modular storage bars after a report of the bar pulling away from the wall.

When weight is applied to the storage bar, the screws holding the mounting plate can pull out of the bar, causing it to fall.

About 7,000 storage bars are affected by the recall.

Consumers should immediately stop using the storage bars and return them to any Cost Plus World Market or World Market store for a free replacement.

The affected wall-mounted storage bars are made of medium-density fiberboard with an oak wood finish that allow hanging storage accessories to be attached. The storage bars were sold in two sizes; long and short. The storage bars have SKU numbers 491996 (long) and 491997 (short) printed on the UPC sticker attached to the product packaging. There are no identifying labels on the product itself.

They were sold at Cost Plus World Market and World Market stores and online from June 2014 through August 2014 for between $20 and $25.

Cost Plus World Market can be contacted at (877) 967-5362.
