J.C. Penney recalls chairs for fall danger

J.C. Penney is recalling about 4,000 spindle-back chairs because they can collapse, creating a fall hazard to users, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission said Thursday.

The company has received four reports of chairs splitting and collapsing, resulting in one minor whiplash injury.

The chairs were sold in sets of four through J.C. Penney's catalogue and website from April 2006 through June 2007 for about $250 US.

Consumers should contact the company for replacement.
