Additional information:
The US Consumer Product Safety Commission (“CPSC”) reports the recalled Control Wands were sold with the La-Z-Boy Silver Luxury Lift model Chairs only.

These electric Control Wands let the user control the movement of the Chair, i.e. to recline it and or to make entering or exiting the chair easier. The rectangular-shaped black plastic wands have a large round circle on the top of the wand with two circle-shaped graphics that read “LIFT” and “RECLINE” and the La-Z-Boy logo printed in white lettering at the bottom of the wand.

The words, “La-Z-Boy”, “REV: 0” and “S/N number 37205143800005310” are printed on a label on the back of the Wand. The Silver Luxury Lift model Chairs were sold in a variety of sizes, colors and fabrics including leather.

Please consult the photograph above for details of the product’s design and retail presentation. Additional brands and/or designs and/or variations of the recalled products or foods are pictured on the Web site above.

According to the CPSC, the Wand that controls the Chair’s movements can overheat, posing a burn hazard. La-Z-Boy has received three (3) reports of the Control Wands on floor samples becoming warm. No injuries have been reported.

If you believe you have purchased or have in your possession the recalled La-Z-Boy Chair with the affected Control Wand, please do not use them. Instead, immediately unplug the Chair from the wall outlet and contact the local dealer from whom you purchased the Chair. The dealer will schedule a time for a service technician to install a free replacement Control Wand at no charge.
