Loose screws on stools create fall hazard

Vanity stools that are prone to loose screws have been recalled due to falling risk they create.

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission said in an advisory that Cheyenne Industries Inc. has agreed to voluntarily recall its Milan vanity stools.

About 89,000 of the stools were sold at Bed, Bath & Beyond from October 2004 to March 2006 for about $60.

The stools, which were manufactured in China, contain the UPC Code 0-50276-85472-2.

The GBS57A model is a rectangular stool with a metal frame that sits about 45 centimetres off the ground.

Screws on the stool can become lose and cause its legs to separate from the seat or break, creating a fall hazard to consumers, the commission said.

Consumers are being asked to check if the screws on their stools require tightening and to contact Cheyenne for a free repair kit.
