Loblaws is recalling thousands of padded folding chairs after reports they could pose a risk of injury due to loose arm rests.
The arm rests can become dislodged, posing a fall hazard, Health Canada said on their website.
Health Canada announced the recall of Tera Gear Padded Folding Chairs with the UPC code 058703406643. It has a grey metal frame with a reclining seat back connected to two handles, and a multi-coloured patterned cushion.
The health agency hasn’t received any reports of injuries, but said Loblaws has received two reports of consumer incidents or injuries to Canadians.
The recall affects approximately 9,600 units at Loblaw Companies Limited stores across Canada. The chairs were sold between March and August 2016.
Anyone who bought the chair should stop using it immediately and return it to the store.
