The stools present a safety risk to users.
The stools, which were sold between Jan. 2021 and May 2021 for approximately $130, were recalled after it was discovered that they are susceptible to breaking or collapsing, thus putting those who sit on them at risk for injury.
The recalled stools have the word “CHINA” printed on a label on the underside of the seat, and can be identified by the numbers 61057, 61063, 61064, 62332, 65129, 65130, 66413, or 66414 on the hanging product tag.
Parent company TJX has received multiple reports of injuries.
At the time the recall was announced, TJX had received 20 reports of the stools breaking, causing those using them to fall.
Among those who fell, 17 received minor injuries of an unspecified nature.
If you have the stools at home, stop using them.
If you purchased the recalled stools, stop using them immediately. The stools can be returned to a HomeGoods or Homesense store for a full refund or a gift card.
