The company has received reports that the chair may post a risk of falling or finger entrapment.
It has been found that after washing the fabric seat it is possible to re-assemble the chair incorrectly.
This can cause the chair to collapse, leading to the injury risks which have been reported five times already.
A company statement read: “Upon receiving the reports a full investigation was initiated. This lead to an improved design to further mitigate the risks of incorrect re-assembly and injuries.”
