Teak Shower Stools Recalled By California Importer Due to Fall Risk
A Hayward, California-based company is recalling 92 shower stools because of an issue that could compromise safety. Importer Taymor Industries announced the recall, which affects teak shower stools with a model number of 02D8092 that were sold online and in a Hammacher Schlemmer New York City store. The stools’ wooden seats are in danger of breaking, potentially causing the person sitting on the unit to sustain fall-related injuries. 11 instances of breakage have been reported, but none of those reportedly led the user to sustain an injury. Owners are being advised to cease usage and send one leg of the stools in a prepaid mailer to Hammacher Schlemmer. The company will use that leg as a proof of purchase and issue a refund and gift certificate to the consumer.
