The chair presents a serious safety risk that's affected customers.
The chairs are being recalled because they are susceptible to collapsing or breaking when they bear weight, putting those who use them at risk of a fall.
At the time the recall was announced, the company had received 18 reports of the chairs collapsing or breaking, with two customers sustaining minor injuries.
If you have the chair at home, stop using it immediately.
The recall notice advises customers to stop using the chair immediately. They can be returned to any Kohl's store; those with a receipt can receive a full refund of their purchase and those who no longer have their receipt will instead get a credit to Kohl's.
Customers can also contact Kohl's Customer Service at 855-564-5755 between 7 a.m. and 6 p.m. CT Monday through Saturday with further questions.
