WASHINGTON - Pier 1 Imports, the Texas-based retailer of imported home furniture, is recalling 2,575 of its Temani wicker outdoor pieces sold in the U.S. and Canada due to a violation of federal lead paint standard.
The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission said the sets, which include a chair, settee and ottoman contain excessive amounts of lead, which can be harmful to children and adults.
About 2,500 of the units were sold in the U.S., and 75 were sold in Canada. No injuries or incidents have been reported related to the recalled items.
The Temani set, which sports a mahogany and pine fram clad, is ivory colored and made with rattan and wicker. Sold exclusively at Pier 1 from March 2014 to April 2017 for between $139 and $559, the set was made by PT Gimex Furniture Manufacturing Co. in Indonesia. The pieces were sold without cushions.
The chair measures 29 inches wide, 29.5 inches deep and 35.5 inches high, the settee measures 51.5 inches wide, 29.5 inches deep and 35.5 inches high, and the ottoman measures 27 inches wide, 18 inches deep and 16 inches high. The furniture has a Pier 1 Imports logo on the underside of each chair, settee and ottoman. The recall involves only the ivory-colored set.
Consumers have been advised to stop using the recalled furniture immediately and return it to any Pier 1 Imports for a full refund or merchandise credit.
