RH recalls 9,700 pieces in Smythson Shagreen collection

Metal trim on pieces can detach, posing injury hazard

RH recallWASHINGTON  - The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission has announced that retailer RH is recalling about 9,700 units in its Smythson Shagreen case goods collection due to injury and laceration hazards.

The recall involves 9,400 occasional tables, dressers, beds, nightstands and sideboards sold in the U.S. and another 300 pieces in the collection that were sold in Canada. The CPSC said that the metal trim on the furniture can detach from the edges and create sharp points, posing injury and laceration hazards.

The retailer has received 29 reports of the metal trim detaching from the furniture resulting in three  puncture wounds and one abrasion.

The units were sold at RH outlet stores nationwide and online at www.rh.com and www.rhmodern.com from December 2015 through June 2017 for between $750 and $6,800.

Made in Vietnam, the pieces are covered in shagreen-embossed leather with metal trim on all edges and sold in four finish/color combinations. The item number is printed on a white sticker on the bottom or back of the pieces.

Consumers have been advised to immediately stop using the recalled furniture and contact RH for a full refund or to receive a free replacement item of similar value. This also includes free pickup of any recalled item.

Consumers can call RH toll free at 888-728-8419 from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday through Saturday, via email at recall@rh.com or online at www.rh.com and click on the safety recalls tab for more information.

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.
