La-Z-Boy issued a recall for about 4,000 of their Control Wands sold with Silver Luxury Lift Chairs, as the wand that controls the chair’s movements can overheat and pose a burn hazard.
The company has received three reports of the control wands on floor samples becoming warm, but no injuries or property damage have been reported. Users should unplug the chair from the wall outlet and contact the local dealer from whom they purchased the chair to schedule a time for a service technician to install a free replacement control wand.
The recalled control wands were sold with the La-Z-Boy Silver Luxury Lift model chairs only. These electric wands allow the user to 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. The chairs with the defective wands were purchased from La-Z-Boy Furniture Galleries stores and independent furniture stores nationwide from August to November 2014 with the Silver Luxury Lift Chair for between $900 and $1700.
