FRAMINGHAM, Mass. — The TJX Companies Inc. on Thursday recalled about 5,000 Novogratz brand outdoor metal hanging chairs because they pose multiple fall risks.
In addition to the chairs falling over, the company also acknowledged that the metal hook or chain suspending the chair can break while a consumer is seated in the chair, posing a separate fall hazard.
Chairs affected by the recall have one of the following style numbers, which are printed on a separate hang tag attached to the product: AY9162, AY9163, BY9162, BY9163, BY9164, CY9162, CY9163, CY9164, DY9162, DY9164, Y9162 or Y9163.
TJX – the Massachusetts-based parent company of T.J. Maxx, Marshalls and HomeGoods – has fielded 22 reports to date of the chairs tipping or falling over or breaking at the hook or chain, resulting in 16 injuries, including bruises and a mild concussion.
The affected chairs were sold at HomeGoods and Homesense stores and HomeGoods/T.J. Maxx or Marshalls combination stores nationwide from March 2021 through May 2022 for between $300 and $330 each.
Consumers are advised to immediately stop using the recalled chairs and return them to any HomeGoods, Homesense or HomeGoods/T.J. Maxx or Marshalls combination stores for their choice of either a full refund or store credit of equivalent value.
