Restoration Hardware Recalls 2,700 Tables Connected to Four Lead Poisonings

Restoration Hardware Recalls 2,700 Tables Connected to Four Lead Poisonings

Restoration Hardware Recalls 2,700 Tables Connected to Four Lead Poisonings

The California based home-furnishing company, Restoration Hardware, has had a tough start to the year. After one recall in January and a subsequent recall in February, the publicly traded company learned that four children from two separate homes had elevated levels of lead in their blood. Both households, one in Beverly Hills, California, and the other in Cranston, Rhode Island, had one thing in common: a wooden Restoration Hardware dining table with a metal top sold for between $750 and $2,600.  According to recall documents, the metal tops potentially contain traces of lead, a substance that is toxic to young children.

Restoration Hardware has now announced their third recall of 2017. Around 2,700 dining tables with fourteen different item numbers, which can be found under the tabletops, are affected: 624430016ZINC 624430017ZINC, 624430018ZINC, 624430022ZINC, 624430023ZINC, 624430024ZINC, 624430025ZINC, 624430026ZINC, 624430027ZINC, 624430028ZINC, 624430029ZINC, 624430030ZINC, 624430031ZINC, & 624430032ZINC. The “Railroad Tie” & “Parsons Railroad Tie” dining tables were sold in Restoration Hardware stores nationwide and on their website between March 2012 and December 2016.

In Restoration Hardware’s January recall around 1,000 vintage race car mobiles, meant to be hung above a young child’s bed or crib, could allegedly break apart because of poor assembly. So far no accidents have been reported, but the furniture maker did receive one report of a wheel detaching. Those $50 decorative mobiles were sold at Restoration Hardware’s Baby & Child stores across the country and online between October 2014 and October 2016. Less than a month later, in the beginning of February 2017, Restoration Hardware announced the recall of around 1,400 Venetian style glass mirrors due to concerns that they may not have been properly glued. Authorities reported two incidents that resulted in lacerations.

Owners of a recalled Restoration Hardware dining table are being told to stop using them immediately, to make sure children do not have access to the tabletop, and to securely cover them until a replacement is provided. Parents who purchased a recalled table are also being encouraged to bring their young children into a doctor for lead testing. Restoration Hardware has told authorities that they will offer affected customers a choice of a replacement dining table or a full refund.
