West Elm, a division of Williams-Sonoma, Inc., recently announced a recall of its Dover Dining Tables. The company initiated the recall after receiving 14 reports of tables collapsing or breaking, including one report of a bruise to a consumer’s leg.
The wooden base of the table can collapse, causing the glass tabletop to fall, posing an injury hazard to consumers.
The Dover dining table is a tempered glass-top table with a brown wooden base. The base has four legs, four buttress support bars and three glasstop support bars. “West Elm” and “SKU: 2188233” are printed on a white label on the underside of the long, center beam.
Approximately 830 tables were sold at West Elm retail and online stores nationwide from July 2011 through October 2011 for about $500.
According to the recall notice, consumers should contact West Elm for a full store credit. West Elm will schedule a free return pickup of the table.
