Hobby Lobby Recalls Butterfly Chairs Due to FallJul 17, 2009 | Parker Waichman LLP
Hobby Lobby Stores, of Oklahoma City, Oklahoma has just issued a recall of about 500 of its Leather Butterfly Chairs due to fall hazard, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission just announced.
The Hobby Lobby Leather Butterfly Chairs’ chair legs can detach, unexpectedly causing the chair to collapse, which poses a fall hazard to consumers. Hobby Lobby Stores has received nine reports of the chairs collapsing, resulting in minor injuries, including contusions.
This recall involves Hobby Lobby’s brown leather butterfly chairs with copper tubing legs. The leather seat has stitching similar to baseball stitching. Item# MI-1007 and PO#9073513 are printed on the front of the hang tag.
The recalled Hobby Lobby Leather Butterfly Chairs were manufactured in India and sold at Hobby Lobby Stores nationwide from February 2009 through April 2009 for about $200.
The CPSC is advising consumers to immediately stop using the chairs and return them to the nearest Hobby Lobby for a full refund or exchange card.
