Recall: Furniture Recalled by Thayer Coggin
Thayer Coggin has received one report of its Sency model chair breaking and one report of its Premier model recliner breaking. The company also is aware of three reports of people who received cuts requiring stitches from the sharp edges underneath its Kingsley model recliner.
Thayer Coggin and commercial furniture dealers sold the chairs, recliners, couches, and settees primarily for institutional use in hospital and medical waiting rooms and reception areas. The following furniture is involved in this recall:
Problems associated with the above brands of recalled furniture are as follows: Signature wood frame furniture can loosen, becoming shaky if the furniture's arm structure weakens; Sency metal frame chairs have defective welds causing the legs to bend; Forte metal frame furniture has a metal support piece that can bend out of shape; Premier recliners have a metal support bar that could bend out of shape if the footrest is improperly pressed down by someone other than the person sitting in the chair; and Kingsley recliners have sharp edges under the footrest that have cut three people who were reaching under the footrests, contrary to manufacturer's instructions.
Offices and institutions should remove the furniture and call Thayer Coggin to arrange for a free repair or, if necessary, replacement. For more information about this recall, consumers should call Thayer Coggin at (910) 841-6000 or write to the company at 230 South Road, High Point, N.C. 27262.
