Children's Rocking Chairs Sold at Target Recalled

Child Rocking ChairStamford, CT (SafetyAlerts) - Jetmax International Ltd., of Stamford, Conn., is voluntarily recalling to repair about 48,000 children's rocking chairs. The rear legs of the chair can separate from the rocker's base causing it to collapse, and the child seated in the chair can fall.

Jetmax has received five reports of these chairs collapsing and children falling. One 13-month-old girl suffered a laceration requiring 18 stitches.

Jetmax imported the rocker exclusively for sale by Target stores. The wooden rocking chairs come in two styles: one for boys and one for girls. The boy's rocker has a yellow frame, red rockers (chair bases) and a blue canvas seat. The girl's rocker has a white frame, purple rockers (chair bases) and a pink canvas seat. There is no writing on the chairs, but the packaging reads, "restoreTM & RESTYLE KIDS," "Wooden Folding Chair," "Ages 3 and Up," and "Made in China." The chairs are designed for children between 30 and 100 pounds. They are 23 inches long, 13 inches wide and 16.5 inches high.

Target stores nationwide sold the rocking chairs from November 1999 through March 2000 for about $20.

Consumers should immediately stop using these rockers, and contact Jetmax International to get a free repair kit with easy installation instructions. For more information and to get the repair kit, call Jetmax International at (800) 880-0714 between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. ET Monday through Friday.
