This recall involves Girona outdoor wooden dining chairs with four legs, and a back and seat made of flat woven weather-resistant wicker straps. The chair is sold in two colors: white (SKU/UPC 536034/0000002536034) and grey (SKU/UPC 536033/0000002536033). The SKU and UPC can be found on the UPC ticket attached to the underside of the chair seat.
Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled chairs and return them to any Cost Plus World Market or World Market store for a full refund.
The firm has received three reports of separation of the tenon joint located between the chair’s back and seat, and two reports of in-store display chairs collapsing while being used by customers. These two customers reported receiving minor cuts and bruises.

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) is charged with protecting the public from unreasonable risk of injury or death associated with the use of thousands of types of consumer products. Deaths, injuries, and property damage from consumer product-related incidents cost the nation more than $1 trillion annually. CPSC's work to ensure the safety of consumer products has contributed to a decline in the rate of injuries associated with consumer products over the past 50 years.
Federal law prohibits any person from selling products subject to a Commission ordered recall or a voluntary recall undertaken in consultation with the CPSC.
