World news – Kmart’s urgent recall of a popular product


Kmart recalled a popular chair that was on sale between 2014 and 2016, stating that the furniture presented a « pinch or cut hazard » to the public.

The retail giant has warned customers not to use the metal chair « immediately » and offered a full refund when it is returned to stores.

The warning was a reprint of an earlier recall message first created in April 2016 for the chairs, which were available in white, red and black and also sold at Brayco and Fantastic Furniture.

« The tapering of the inside of the chair legs can create a risk of entrapment or cuts, » Kmart Australia said on Facebook.

« Kmart can provide customers with a free connector kit. These connectors must be inserted into the legs of the chairs. After inserting the connectors, customers can continue to use the chairs.

« Alternatively, customers can return the chairs for a full refund. This item was available between July 2014 and March 2016. »

Eight people were injured from chairs and unsuspecting victims had their feet cut open by the sharp edges, The Daily Telegraph reported in 2016.

One victim told the newspaper that a doctor said the cut in his foot was so severe. « I couldn’t have done a better job with a scalpel. »
