An exposed gap between the moving parts of the chair and the base framework can allow access to toddlers and infants, posing an entrapment hazard. In addition, other exposed moving parts on the chair and the ottoman can pose finger pinching and crushing hazards to older children and adults.
Both the chair and ottoman sit on circular metal bases made from metal tubing and have cushions covered in either light brown or green microfiber fabric or dark brown simulated leather fabric.
They were sold at Big Lots stores nationwide from January 2005 through December 2009 for about $170.
Consumers should immediately stop using the chairs and contact the company for a free repair kit that covers the base framework and the moving parts of the chair and ottoman.
