WASHINGTON, June 26 (UPI) -- U.S. regulators announced a voluntary recall of Bluestem Brands and Tone World International recliners due to excessive levels of lead paint.
About 405 recliners were imported from China by Bluestem Brands Inc. of Eden Prairie, Minn., and sold through Fingerhut catalog sales and online from July 2011 through January 2012.
The legs of the chair are coated with paint with lead that exceeds federal standards, the Consumer Products Safety Commission said.
To identify the chairs, consumers should look for the phrases "Manufactured By Xiamen Xinzhjheng Foam Products Co., LTD Xiang-Bei Industrial Area, Xiang' An District, Xiamen" and "Made in China."
The labels are on the underside of the recliner chair.
Consumers are advised to contact the distributor, Tone World International Inc. of Minneapolis to receive free replacement legs and replacement instructions.
Consumer can call 763-513-9596 for information.
