Recall in place for chairs sold nationwide

WASHINGTON, D.C. (KAIT) - The U.S. Product Safety Commission in cooperation with Ross Stores Inc., of Pleasanton, California have announced a voluntary recall of their Acacia chairs.

The chairs are being recalled because they can collapse when weight is placed on them, posing a fall hazard to consumers.

According to Ross Stores Inc., five reports of chairs collapsing and four minor injuries have been reported.

The recalled chairs have a natural finish made of acacia wood with SKU number 400058432585 or 400058432608 printed on the price tag. The price tag is white and located on the front of the seat's chair. There are no other markings on the chair.

These chairs were sold exclusively at Ross Stores nationwide between March 2011 and May 2011 for about $40. About 1,200 chairs are affected in this recall.

Consumers should immediately stop using these chairs and return them to any Ross Store for a full refund.

For additional information, contact Ross at (877) 455-7677 anytime or visit the Ross Stores' web site at www.rossstores.com.
