WASHINGTON - Hammacher Schlemmer has issued a voluntary recall of 92 teak shower stools after receiving 11 reports of the wood seats breaking during set up or normal use.
None of the malfunctions resulted in an injury, according to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC).
The shower stools, made in China, have four metal legs with a teak wood top and two metal grate shelves. They were imported for Hammacher Schlemmer by Taymor Industries of Hayward, CA.
CPSC said consumers should discard the stools with the exception of sending one leg to Hammacher Schlemmer for a full refund and $25 gift card.
Hammacher Schlemmer bills itself as "America's longest-running catalog" retailer, having been established in 1848.
