WASHINGTON (AP) -- About 1,440 Echo swivel rocker chairs being recalled after the manufacturer received reports that the chairs can crack.
Tropitone Furniture Co. of Irvine, Calif., has received five reports of the base of the rocker chairs cracking, and one report of a consumer falling from a chair -- though no injuries have been reported, the Consumer Product Safety Commission said Thursday.
The chairs have oval-shaped arms and are sold in two styles. Chairs with model number 189930 have cushion seats; chairs with model number 199930 have sling fabric seats. Both models were sold in various solid colors and print fabrics.
The chair frames have six color finishes: aged pewter, aluminum, chrome, golden bronze, heron blue and textured ebony.
Outdoor furniture stores nationwide sold the chairs from January through May for between $250 and $280.
