Chrome Shelving Recall

On April 1, 2010, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) and King Long Metal Industrial Co. Ltd. announced a voluntary recall of approximately 6,800 six-tier chrome shelving units, due to a potential injury hazard. The recalled shelving units, sold only in Costco Wholesale Club stores nationwide, were found to have weak casters that can break at the stem and cause the unit to fall or collapse.

The recall affects all six-tier chrome shelving units with model number 392360 and "NSF King Long Industrial" printed on the side of the corner collar. The shelves were sold at Costco stores nationwide from December 2009 through January 2010.

Consumers are advised to immediately remove the casters from the shelving units and contact the company at 888-445-9355 to receive replacement casters.
