CPSC says metal power assembly unit can bend when returning the chair to upright position, causing the chair back to detach
ATLANTA, Ga. — HNN 125 retailer Havertys has recalled 930 of its Concord dual power recliners because of a potential fall hazard.
The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission said that the chair’s metal power mechanism assembly can bend when the chair is reclined and weight is applied to the chair back while returning it to the upright position. This can cause the chair back to detach, thus posing a fall hazard.
The company has received nine reports of the chair back detaching with two consumers reporting injuries involving the back, neck and hip.
The recall involves the Concord dual power recliners with SKU number 0-3500-1827 printed on a label affixed to the chair. They are upholstered in leather in a variety of colors including blue and brown. The chair is 33 inches wide, 41.5 inches deep and 39.5 inches high and has the Havertys label located under the seat cushion.
The chairs were made by Artistic Leathers S de RL de CV of Mexico and Ultra-Mek Inc. of Denton, North Carolina made the metal power mechanism. They were imported by Artistic Leathers of Bonita, California.
They were sold at Havertys stores nationwide and online at Havertys.com from September 2020 through January 2023 for between $3,000 and $3,800.
Consumers have been advised to stop using the chairs and contact Havertys for a free repair by a service technician, who will install a replacement part in the metal power assembly mechanism. Havertys is contacting all known purchasers directly.
