Cheyenne Industries Recalls Vanity Stools Due to Fall Hazard

WASHINGTON, D.C. - The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, in cooperation with the firm named below, today announced a voluntary recall of the following consumer product. Consumers should stop using recalled products immediately unless otherwise instructed.


Distributor: Cheyenne Industries Inc., of Little Rock, Ark.

Hazard: The recalled stools can become unstable due to loose screws, which can cause the stool legs to separate or break, posing a fall hazard to consumers.

Incidents/Injuries: Cheyenne has received nine reports of incidents, including seven resulting in minor injuries from the stool legs separating or breaking.

Description: This recall involves the Milan Vanity Stool Model GBS57A. The stools are rectangular benches sitting about 18 inches off the ground, with fabric-covered seat cushions and metal frames. UPC Code 0-50276-85472-2 is printed on the identification tag on the underside of the seat cushion. Only stools using four screws to hold the stool legs to a foot ring are impacted by this recall.

Sold at: Bed Bath & Beyond and other retailers nationwide from October 2004 through March 2006 for about $60.

Manufactured in: China

Remedy: Consumers should immediately check the screws on their stools and if the screws are stripped or cannot be tightened, or if a stool leg has broken, consumers should stop using it and contact Cheyenne Industries for a free repair kit. Consumers should not return the stools to the store where purchased.

Consumer Contact: For additional information, contact Cheyenne Industries at (800) 737-5267 between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. CT Monday through Friday or visit the firm's Web site at
