Jo-Ann Fabric Stores recalls SmartSpace due to fall hazard

Sep '08
The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, in cooperation with the firm named below, announced a voluntary recall of the following consumer product. Consumers should stop using recalled products immediately unless otherwise instructed.

Jo-Ann Stores Inc, of Hudson, Ohio. The chairs were sold without a warning label instructing Consumers to lock the chair's legs before sitting. This poses a fall hazard to consumers.

Jo-Ann has received five reports of chairs collapsing when the legs were not locked. No injuries have been reported.

This recall involves the SmartSpace Papasan chair. The silver metal frame chair has a circular fabric seat that sits on a 10-inch-tall base.

The fabric seat used with the papasan chairs were sold in purple, pacific, lime yellow and gray. A hangtag on the chair reads "Smartspace Papasan Chair 1 piece."

Jo-Ann Fabric and Craft stores nationwide from June 2008 through September 2008 for about $25.

Consumers should immediately stop using the chair until a warning label, instructing consumers to engage the legs in the locked position before use, has been obtained from Jo-Ann Fabric and Craft Stores.

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission is charged with protecting the public from unreasonable risks of serious injury or death from more than 15,000 types of consumer products under the agency's jurisdiction.

Deaths, injuries and property damage from consumer product incidents cost the nation more than $800 billion annually. The CPSC is committed to protecting consumers and families from products that pose a fire, electrical, chemical, or mechanical hazard.

The CPSC's work to ensure the safety of consumer products such as toys, cribs, power tools, cigarette lighters, and household chemicals contributed significantly to the decline in the rate of deaths and injuries associated with consumer products over the past 30 years.
