WASHINGTON, D.C. (KAIT) – The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) and EQ3 Ltd., of Winnipeg, Canada has announced the voluntary recall of Scarpa Wood and Glass Round Dining Tables due to collapse and impact hazards.
According to the CPSC, the wooden table base can split or collapse, causing the glass table top to fall, posing collapse and impact hazards to table owners. EQ3 says it is aware of four incidents where the table base split and/or cracked, causing the table top to slant or fall, but no injuries have been reported.
The table was sold at EQ3 Stores and furniture stores nationwide from January 2011 through June 2011 for about $500. It has a round top made of tempered glass, and three interlocking wooden legs, either black or brown in color. The tables measure 60 inches in diameter and 30 inches high. They have a nearly half inch thick (10 mm) clear glass top. Recalled tables have five screw holes in the joint where the legs meet. "Model 24396" and "Made In/Fabrique Au: China" are printed on a label at the joint.
Consumers should immediately stop using the Scarpa tables and contact EQ3 to arrange for pickup of the table in exchange for a free replacement product or full refund. EQ3 has contacted all known purchasers.
