ATLANTA – Home improvement retailer Home Depot has recalled about 3,100 Windsor dining chairs due to a potential fall hazard.
The recall involves the StyleWell Wood Windsor Dining Chairs. While no injuries have been reported, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission said there have been 17 reports of the chair back detaching from the base.
It has advised consumers to immediately stop using the recalled chairs and inspect them for missing screw holes and wood screws on the underside of the chair seat base. The company also is contacting all known purchasers directly to provide instructions on how to inspect the chairs for flaws.
The chairs were sold in sets of two in black, natural wood, red and white, and have eight vertical backrest spindles. The chair seat base is 17.5 inches wide by 17.5 inches deep and is 17 inches tall. The chair back is about 19 inches wide and 18 inches tall from the top of the chair seat base and each chair weighs about 15 pounds.
The CPSC said only chairs without screw holes and wood screws on the rear underside of the chair seat base are included in the recall.
Made in China and imported by Home Depot Product Authority of Atlanta, the chair sets were sold online at www.homedepot.com from September 2019 through January 2021 for about $150.
