CPSC recalls 70,000 Frontgate-sold chairs after reports of finger crushing

WASHINGTON – The Consumer Product Safety Commission has announced another furniture recall, bringing the total to three in just a week.

Cinmar, which does business as omnichannel retailer and lifestyle brand Frontgate, has recalled 70,000 chaise lounge chairs due to finger crushing and entrapment hazards. Cinmar has received three reports of incidents involving consumers’ fingers becoming entrapped between the adjustable backrest and the chair frame, resulting in two partial finger amputation injuries, and one finger-crushing injury requiring surgery.

“When adjusting the backrest while seated, the adjustable backrest can unexpectedly descend with force, posing finger crushing and amputation hazards,” the CPSC wrote.

These chairs were sold at Frontgate stores in Georgia, Kentucky, North Carolina, Ohio and Texas, and online at Frontgate.com from February 2014 through December 2023 for between $600 to $1,400. They were made in China.

The recall specifically involves Cinmar Frontgate Resort Collection Newport Aluminum Chaises (SKU 67333), sold in sets of two and in five different colors: architectural bronze, champagne silver, cobalt, matte black and matte white; and Frontgate Resort Collection Newport Teak Chaises (SKU 166218), sold in sets of two in weathered and natural finishes.

Consumers are urged to immediately stop using the chairs and contact Cinmar for a free repair.

Other recalled items this week include the Hayden bookcase, which was sold by Scandinavian-inspired furniture retailer Dania Furniture. Last August, Dania received one report of a tip-over incident with an unanchored bookcase that resulted in the death of a 4-year-old child.

Also this week, CPSC recalled another series of Rooms To Go dressers for violating the STURDY Act. This is the second such recall for Rooms To Go.
