A metal band at the base of the product can have sharp edges

Meridian Furniture is recalling 7,800 of its ottoman products because they have the potential to cause laceration injuries. 

The ottomans come equipped with a metal band at the base that may contain sharp edges, which has resulted in six reports of laceration injuries from consumers so far. The ottomans were sold online at Wayfair, Amazon, Hayneedle, and 200 other stores nationwide from June 2018, through October 2021.

Consumers who own one of the ottomans are advised to stop using them and contact Meridian Furniture. The company will send a prepaid mailing package and shipping label so that the product can be returned. Consumers can also provide photographic evidence of the disposal or destruction of the product to receive a full refund.
