The Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) and Whittier Wood Products Announce Recall of Pub Stools Which May CollapseAug 19, 2005 | www.Newsinferno.com
Whittier Wood Products, of Eugene, Oregon, in cooperation with the CPSC, has announced the voluntary recall of about 2,200 Chelsea Pub Stools manufactured in Brazil. Customers should stop using the product immediately.
The amount of glue used to bond and hold the joints together on these stools could be insufficient.
As a result, these stools could break and collapse during use, causing consumers to fall. So far, no injuries have been reported
The stool is marketed under the brand name of GardenWood Furniture. The recalled pub stools include the Chelsea Pub Stools model numbers 986W and 986KFRS as indicated on the outside of the box.
Both stools are constructed with wood legs, seats, and back-rests. Seat height is 30 inches and was sold both unfinished (W) as well as in a clear, penetrating oil finish (KFRS). Units with Lot code #06222005 are not affected by this recall.
