On April 28, 2022, U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (“CPSC”) issued a notice following Amazon’s recall of its AmazonBasics School Classroom Stack Chairs. The notice states that the weld on the chair’s frame can fail to pose a fall hazard. Amazon announced the recall after having received at least 55 consumer reports of the chairs breaking.
The AmazonBasics School Classroom Stack Chairs were marketed and sold for children aged between three and six years old and were listed with a maximum weight load of up to 190 pounds. The CPSC recall notice states that these children’s chairs measured 17 inches long, 15 inches wide, by 26 inches high and were sold in various colors. The recall affects about 22,400 units of the company’s stackable classroom chairs.
According to the worldwide online retailer, the affected products were sold online at Amazon.com from January 2019 through January 2022 in sets of six chairs. Amazon asks that consumers immediately stop using the chairs and contact the company for instructions on how to dispose of the chairs for a full refund. The company also states that it is attempting to contact all known purchasers directly.
