CPSC, LPK International Announce Recall of Barstools
PRODUCT: Barstools - LPK International Inc., of Northbrook, Ill., is
voluntarily recalling about 1,900 barstools. This recall includes 24-
inch and 29-inch high, natural wood finish barstools with round seats.
The barstools have model numbers 74150 (24-inch) and 75151 (29-inch).
The model numbers are printed on a sticker on the underside of the
barstool's seat. A circular stamp on the underside of the seat reads,
"H.L." and "NOV 2001." Shopko Stores sold the barstools in central and
northwest U.S. from January 2002 through March 2002 for about $20. They
were assembled in the United States.
PROBLEM: The dowels connecting the barstools' legs to the seat are not
properly secured. During use, the barstools can collapse, posing a risk
of injury to the consumer.
INCIDENTS/INJURIES: LPK has received six reports of the barstools
collapsing. A consumer injured his back when his barstool collapsed and
he fell to the ground.
WHAT TO DO: Consumers should stop using these recalled barstools
immediately and return them to the nearest Shopko store for a refund.
For more information, consumers can contact LPK International toll-free
at (800) 772-1606, Monday through Thursday 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. (CT)
