FRAMINGHAM, Mass. — TJX Cos., the corporate parent of T.J. Maxx and Marshall’s, has recalled nearly 11,000 benches whose legs can break, posing a fall hazard.
The recall announced this week involves 10,850 of the Haining Degao benches whose legs can break or detach when the consumer is seated on the bench.
The company has received 21 reports of the legs breaking or detaching, with 17 reports of injuries including bruises, scratches and back strains.
The recall covers the benches that feature a cushion seat in navy, gray, cream, white and yellow fabric and four wooden legs that screw into the unit. Each bench measures 42 inches long by 15.5 inches wide and 17.5 inches tall. HAINING DEGAO HOME FURNISHINGS CO. LTD. and MADE IN CHINA are printed on a label underneath each unit.
Made in China, they were sold at Marshalls and T.J. Maxx stores from December 2021 through March 2023 for about $130.
Consumers have been advised to immediately stop using the benches and contact TJX for instructions on how to take part in the recall and dispose of the units from home in order to receive a full refund. Consumers also can return the units to any Marshalls or T.J. Maxx store for a full refund.
