Pier 1 Imports recalls Temani wicker furniture
May 24, 2017,
WASHINGTON – Top 100 company Pier 1 Imports is recalling 2,575 of its Temani wicker outdoor pieces sold in the U.S. and Canada because of a violation of federal lead paint standard.
The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission said the sets, which include a chair, settee and ottoman can contain excessive amounts of lead, which can be harmful to children and adults.
The Temani set is ivory colored and made with rattan and wicker. Made by PT Gimex Furniture Manufacturing Co. in Indonesia, it was sold exclusively at Pier 1 Imports stores nationwide and online at www.pier1.com from March 2014 to April 2017 for between $139 and $559. The pieces were sold without cushions.
The chair measures 29 inches wide, 29.5 inches deep and 35.5 inches high, the settee measures 51.5 inches wide, 29.5 inches deep and 35.5 inches high, and the ottoman measures 27 inches wide, 18 inches deep and 16 inches high. The furniture has a Pier 1 Imports logo on the underside of each chair, settee and ottoman. The recall involves only the ivory-colored set.
Consumers have been advised to stop using the recalled furniture immediately and return it to any Pier 1 Imports for a full refund or merchandise credit.
Consumers seeking further information can call Pier 1 toll free at 855-513-5140 from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. Central Time, Monday through Friday; 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Central Time, Saturday; or 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Central Time, Sunday; or visit www.pier1.com and click on the product notes and recalls link at the bottom of the page.
