Barstools may set you up for a fall

It’s understandable if someone topples off a barstool after a few too many cocktails. But TJX is recalling about 1,100 swivel barstools that could lead to falls for a totally different reason. According to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, wood joints on the barstool can break, posing a fall hazard.

TJX has received four reports of the barstool breaking, including three reports of minor injuries. The recall involves TJX swivel barstools with a beige, blue or gray fabric back and seat, and wooden legs. The barstools measure about 18 inches wide, 22.8 inches deep and 40.9 inches high. A full list of the recalled product numbers is available at https://bit.ly/2oWbMhM.

The products were sold at HomeGoods, Marshalls and T.J. Maxx stores nationwide from September 2017 through December 2017 for between $100 and $130. Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled barstools and return them to any of the three stores that sold them for a full refund.
