Australian retailer recalls chairs that chop toes
Fantastic Furniture advertises itself as having "Australia's Best Value in Bedding and Furniture." However, after two recent incidents with its Worx chairs it has recalled them.
|The retailer has sold almost 100,000 of the popular chairs. There have been two incidents, one in which an entire toe was lost, and another in which part of a toe was sliced off.|
“They should have recalled the chair straight away. But nothing was done and now someone else has been hurt.”He told reporters that he was still not used to being without the toe and was seeking compensation. However, even after the incident the chairs passed subsequent quality control tests. Competitors sell virtually identical chairs to the $39 dollar Fantastic chairs but so far none of them have chopped off anyone's toes.
