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) and Friday 8:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. (CT).
