Herrington Swivel Rockers Sold at Lowe's Stores Recalled for Fall Hazard

CPSC

WASHINGTON, D.C. - The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, in cooperation with the firm named below, today announced a voluntary recall of the following consumer product. Consumers should stop using recalled products immediately unless otherwise instructed.

Name of Product: Herrington Swivel Rocker

Units: About 1,100

Importer: LG Sourcing Inc., of North Wilkesboro, N.C.

Manufacturer: Hanamint Corporation (Jiaxing), Inc., of China

Hazard: The recalled swivel rockers can be assembled incorrectly, causing them to break at the base or tip over backward easily. This poses a fall hazard to consumers.

Incidents/Injuries: LG Sourcing received nine reports of injuries including bruises and abrasions when the rocker broke or tipped over. One individual reported having a slight concussion. All of the reported injuries involved display models at Lowe's stores.

Description: The rocker is part of the Herrington collection of patio furniture. The rocker is dark brown with a brown cloth seat, has a swivel base and a cut out pattern on the metal backrest. The item number, 119178, is printed on the rocker's packaging and on the assembly instructions. The rocker came in two sections, a base and a seat, and customers were required to bolt the seat to the base.

Sold exclusively at: Lowe's stores nationwide from October 2005 through February 2006 for about $420 for a set of two rockers.

Manufactured In: China

Remedy: Consumers should stop using the recalled rockers immediately and return them to any Lowe's store for a full refund.
