Avalon Furniture has recalled about 9,500 units of its bedroom furniture collection due to violations of federal lead paint laws and the risk of lead poisoning, according to an announcement from the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC). The recall involves the Cottage Town Bedroom Furniture Collection sold from October 2019 through April 2020.
According to the CPSC, the base coat of paint used on pieces within the furniture collection contains levels of lead that exceed the federal lead paint standard. Lead is toxic if ingested by young children and can cause adverse health effects. At the time of the recall, Avalon Furniture had received no reports of injuries or incidents.
The recalled bedroom collection was sold exclusively at Rooms To Go stores and online. The recalled collection was sold in white, black, and gray colors, and a set included a dresser, mirror, king headboard, king footboard, queen headboard, queen footboard, chest, and gent's chest. Vertical wood paneling is featured on the front or sides of each piece, and a label containing the product's SKU number and manufacture date is located on the back of each furniture piece. The CPSC has provided a full list of the group and item numbers and SKU numbers of the recalled products.
