Boston Warehouse Trading Corp Recalls Folding Wooden Chairs

Boston Warehouse Trading Corp Recalls Folding Wooden ChairsNorwood, MA (SafetyAlerts) - Boston Warehouse Trading Corp. is recalling about 1,800 folding wooden chairs.  The screws holding the chair's front leg folding mechanism can work loose causing the chair to collapse, resulting in injury.

Boston Warehouse Trading Corp. has received three reports of chairs collapsing, resulting in one muscle strain injury and one property damage incident.

The recall involves the B.W. Home brand folding chairs made of white wood with a rush seat. The chair measures 15.75 inches wide, 18.25 inches deep, and 35 inches high. The seat is 18 inches high. There is a "bw HOME" sticker and a "MADE IN TAIWAN" sticker on the seat's frame. A hang tag identified the chair as "Lilla", model number 00222, but neither "Lilla" nor the model are on the chair.

Specialty gift, department and furniture stores nationwide sold the chairs from January 1999 through January 2000 for about $150.
