However, for safety reasons, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission has advised consumers to stop using the recalled chairs immediately and to return them to the company for a full refund. The grocery store chain is also contacting all known purchasers directly.

The chairs were sold in black and brown and have the following UPC codes: 4122089244 for the black version and 4122091920 for the brown version. These codes can be found on the chairs’ hangtag.
