Restoration Hardware recalls Venetian-style glass mirrors

CPSC: Units can fall, posing a laceration hazard

rh round mirrorCORTE MADERA, Calif. – Restoration Hardware, also known as RH, has recalled about 1,400 mirrors due to a laceration hazard associated with the pieces.

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission said the recall involves the company’s 18th century Venetian-style glass beveled mirrors, which it claims are not properly glued to the backing, which can cause them to fall.

RH has received four reports of the mirror detaching from the wood backing, resulting in two laceration injuries.

Made in India, the recalled mirrors were sold at RestorationHardware.com and Rhbabyandchild.com from April 2015 through May 2016 for between $650 and $1,800. The units are antiqued silver, have a wood backing and come in a variety of shapes and sizes. The recall only affects mirrors with a Hangman hanging system on the back.

The month and year of production is located on a green sticker on the back of the mirrors. Mirrors with a production date after April 1, 2015, are included in the recall, the CPSC said.

The CPSC has advised consumers to immediately stop using the recalled mirrors and call Restoration Hardware for a full refund at 888-728-8419. Information is also available on the safety recall link at www.restorationhardware.com.

RH officials declined further comment on the recall.

I'm Tom Russell and have worked at Furniture/Today since August 2003. Since then, I have covered the international side of the business from a logistics and sourcing standpoint. Since then, I also have visited several furniture trade shows and manufacturing plants in Asia, which has helped me gain perspective about the industry in that part of the world. As I continue covering the import side of the business, I look forward to building on that knowledge base through conversations with industry officials and future overseas plant tours. From time to time, I will file news and other industry perspectives online and, as always, welcome your response to these Web postings.
