Recall Issued On Foldable Step Stools Sold By QVC

The manufacturer of foldable step stools sold by QVC has recalled the items after some of them cracked, causing users to fall and sustain injuries.

Kikkerland Design of New York voluntarily recalled its Easy-Fold and Easy-Store Step Stools in cooperation with the Consumer Product Safety Commission. Consumers should stop using the product immediately unless otherwise instructed.

QVC sold about about 13,000 of the stools for $40 each. The step stools can crack or break, posing a fall hazard to consumers, according to the recall information.

There have been nine reports of the stools cracking or breaking, resulting in four reports of injuries including ankle sprains and contusions.

The tops of the foldable step stools have white polka dots and were sold as a set of two, including 9-inch and 15-inch stools. The grey 9-inch stool has a sticker with model number ZZ09-GR on the front, and the brown 15-inch stool has a sticker with model number ZZ08-BR on the front. Only stools sold by QVC are included in this recall.

Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled step stools. If the step stools were purchased at a QVC store, consumers should return the product to any QVC store to receive a full refund.

Consumers who purchased the step stools through a QVC television program or qvc.com were mailed instructions on how to receive a refund.

For more information, contact QVC at (800) 367-9444 between 7 a.m. and 1 a.m. ET daily, or visit the firm’s Web site at http://www.qvc.com

CPSC is still interested in receiving incident or injury reports that are either directly related to this product recall or involve a different hazard with the same product. They can register those complaints by visiting http://www.cpsc.gov/cgibin/incident.aspx.
