GREENSBORO, N.C. – Outdoor furniture resource Hanamint Corp. has recalled about 12,000 of its swivel rockers due to a potential fall hazard that can occur when the chair’s post can separate from the base.
The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission said this week that the company has received 26 reports of the post separating from the base, including one incident that resulted in a small scrape.
Consumers have been advised to stop using the chairs immediately and contact the company for a free repair.
The recall involves all dining swivel rockers, club swivel rockers and swivel gliders in all designs and featuring mechanisms with solid posts. The chairs have aluminum frames and are suitable for indoor and outdoor use. They also are sold in a variety of finishes including Black, Desert Bronze and Terra Mist. The company logo can be seen cast into the underside of the seat.
Made in China, these were imported by Hanamint Corp. of Greensboro, N.C., and distributed by the same company. They were sold at Christy Sports, Chair King, Today’s Patio, The Great Escape, Fortunoff and other stores across the U.S. from January 2020 through June 2020 for about $600.
