Home Depot Recalls Faulty Dining Chairs
Home Depot, a major retailer in the United States, recalls its dining chairs over claims that the back breaks.
The retailer has received multiple reports from consumers who bought the chairs whose back part broke after some usage.
This has prompted Home Depot to trigger a recall of the product and to stop selling it.
The product recall was issued by Home Depot on February 25, 2021.
According to the company, the particular dining chair in question is the StyleWell Wood Windsor set.
The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) states that the set includes two dining chairs sold by Home Depot from September 2019 to January 2021.
The dining chair set was sold by the company for $150. The dining chairs come in variants of white, red, natural wood, and black.
Home Depot has not yet received any reports of injuries obtained from using the chair.
However, they have received a total of 17 reports claiming that the back of the chair broke after use.
The company advises any affected consumers to stop using the chairs immediately.
They also ask customers to check under the chair’s base for missing screws and screw holes.
According to CPSC, the dining chair’s back part tends to break and detach from the base.
This can be dangerous for consumers who will use it since they may fall, leading to accidents and injuries.
The CPSC has posted a notice on their website regarding the dining chairs being recalled.
They have also advised affected consumers to halt using the chairs to prevent any further incidents.
Aside from this, they have also prohibited the reselling of the products.
The website has also published the following description of the recalled dining chairs:
- Manufactured in China.
- Imported by Home Depot Product Authority (Atlanta).
- It has a seat base that is 17.5 inches wide, 17.5 inches tall, and 17.5 inches deep.
- It has a back that measures 18 inches tall and 19 inches wide.
- It weighs around 15 pounds.
The recall only covers dining chairs without missing screw holes or wooden screws. CPSC estimates that more than 3,000 were sold by Home Depot and will be recalled.
Home Depot announced that they have started contacting customers who directly bought from them to notify and give inspection instructions regarding the faulty chairs.
The company has offered to give refunds to affected customers who bought the chair sets without missing screws or holes. The refund does not cover chairs without these missing parts.
Customers who have any questions regarding the recall and refund process can contact Home Depot at (800) 466-3337.
