More than 10,000 bench seats sold at TJ Maxx and Marshalls have been recalled as the legs can break or detach from the recalled bench when a consumer is seated on the bench, posing a fall hazard.
The firm has received 21 reports of the legs breaking or detaching from the bench when a consumer was seated on a bench at a store, including 17 reports of injuries involving bruises, scratches and back strains.
This recall involves benches with a cushion top and four wooden legs that screw into the bench. The cushion top was sold in navy, gray, cream, white and yellow. The bench measures 42 inches long by 15.5 inches deep by 17.5 inches tall. “HAINING DEGAO HOME FURNISHINGS CO., LTD.” and “MADE IN CHINA” are printed on a label underneath the bench.
Marshalls and T.J. Maxx stores nationwide from December 2021 through March 2023 for about $130.
Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled benches and contact TJX for instructions on how to participate in the recall and dispose of the benches from home to receive a full refund. Consumers can also return the recalled benches to any Marshalls or T.J. Maxx store for a full refund.
