Fall and injury hazards have resulted in a number of recalls in the last week, according to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission.
Bed Bath & Beyond is recalling its Salt lounge chairs because the locking mechanism on the chair frame can disengage, posing a fall hazard.
The company has received 19 reports of the chairs breaking, including four reports of minor injuries from falls. The chairs were sold at Bed Bath & Beyond stores and online from April to August.
Consumers should stop using the chairs and return them to any Bed Bath & Beyond location for a full refund of the purchase price or a merchandise credit if the purchase price cannot be determined.
Jakks Pacific is recalling its MorfBoard Skate & Scoot combo scooters with “y” handlebars because the handlebars can break, posing a fall hazard.
The company has received 18 reports of the handlebars breaking, including one injury in which a child fell and got a bloody nose.
The product is a skateboard system that has interchangeable parts that convert into a scooter and were sold in a variety of colors. For manufacturing dates, check out the commission’s website at www.cpsc.gov.
The combo scooters were sold at Walmart, Target, Toys R Us, Meijer and BJ’s Wholesale Club stores and online at Amazon and MorfBoard from February 2018 to August 2020.
Consumers should stop using the scooters and contact the company at 855-602-5464 to receive a free replacement “t” handlebar.
The commission last week also announced two recalls of bookshelves that can collapse when fully loaded.
Crate and Barrell is recalling its Danish Tall Bookcases that were sold in white and natural wood colors because of a fall and injury hazard.
