Ross Recalls Marble Plant Stands

On August 4, 2009, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission and Ross Stores, Inc. announced a voluntary recall of approximately 1,800 marble top plant stands, due to a potential for the marble top to detach from the base and fall onto consumers. Ross Stores has already received two reports of incidents involving the marble top falling and bruising consumers.

The recall affects all plant stands with marble tops and black wrought iron bases that were sold in Ross stores nationwide from March 2009 through June 2009. The stands were available in small (24 inches tall), medium (28 in), and large (32 in).

Consumers are advised to stop using the products immediately and return them to any Ross store for a full refund.
