ARCHBOLD, Ohio - Sauder Woodworking, one of the largest ready-to-assemble furniture makers in North America, has recalled more than 3,000 of its counter-height bar stools due to a potential fall hazard.
The Sauder and Aliesha-May stools have yet to cause an injury, but the company has received three reports of them being unstable, as well as two reports of falls.
The Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) is recommending that all consumers immediately stop using the units. Users are being urged to contact Sauder to receive a full refund.
Sauder and the CPSC are also contacting all customers directly.
Made in China and imported by Sauder, the affected stools were sold between January 2020 and February 2021 on sites including Wayfair, Zola.com, and Cymax.com. They sold between $85 and $95 for a two-piece set.
Sauder ranks number 20 on the FDMC 300, making it one of the largest woodworking companies in North America. The company operates eight manufacturing plants and employs more than 2,500 workers.
