Dimension has launched a recall of Sling Fabric Café sets, which were for sale exclusively at Costco Wholesale Stores nationwide between December 2013 and May of 2014. The set has been recalled due to the discovery of a fall hazard created by the absence of a metal washer plate on the chairs.
The sling fabric sets were for purchase for about $400 and consisted of two aluminum swivel chairs and a rectangular table with a porcelain tile tabletop with a natural stone appearance. Although no reports of incident or injuries have been released, consumers are encouraged to immediately discontinue use of the chairs and contact Dimension to receive a free repair kit or at the consumer’s request a full refund. Consumers can call Dimension at (800) 598-6532 between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. Monday through Friday or online at www.costco.com by selecting “Customer Service” and clicking “Recalls”.
In 2003 there were a reported 2,223,940 ER visits to treat injuries resulting from home furnishings and fixtures. Millions of others are reported as having sought medical treatment in general due to injuries. Depending on the age and current health condition of an individual even a minor fall or defect in a product can potentially cause injury and or health complications. Unfortunately it is not unheard of for consumers to become injured as a result of a defect involving a home furnishing or fixture such as furniture, safety equipment, window dressings, ladders, stools, etc.
