LAKE FOREST, Ill., Aug. 14 (UPI) -- Brunswick Bowling & Billiards Corp., of Lake Forest, Ill., is recalling about 22,400 Frameworx Table Height Chairs and Bar Stools.

The "down shaft" on the seat plate assembly can fracture, which can cause an occupant of the seat to fall, Brunswick said late last week.

Brunswick has received reports of 20 incidents in which the seat plate assembly has failed. Three injuries resulting from falling from a seat have been reported.

The recalled chairs and bar stools were sold under the model name Frameworx. The models affected are short table height chair model number 53-861025-000 and tall bar stool model number 57-860979-000. The model name and model numbers are not written on the chairs. The model number is only written on the original shipping carton, packing list or invoice.

Bowling centers owning these table height chairs and bar stools have been directly notified about this recall. Owners of the bar stools and table height chairs should stop using these products immediately and contact Brunswick to receive a free repair kit.

Questions may be directed to 800-937-2695.
