MENOMONEE FALLS, Wis. (WKBT) — Kohl’s is recalling an antigravity chair that doesn’t quite live up to its name: It can collapse or break when weight is applied, according to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission.

The Sonoma Goods for Life Branded Ultimate Oversized Antigravity Chair poses a fall hazard, according to the CPSC and the Menomonee Falls-based chain.

Kohl’s, which sold about 31,000 of the chairs in several colors, has received 18 reports about chairs that either collapsed or broke, including two reports of minor injuries, according to a CPSC news release.

Kohl’s sold the chairs for about $240 in stores nationwide and online at www.kohls.com from January 2019 through June 2021.

The chairs have an aluminum frame, a fabric seat/back and a removable head pillow attached with Velcro. The aluminum legs are square tubes. Eyelets attaching the fabric to the frame are covered with fabric and are not visible from the top of the chair.

Consumers should stop using the recalled chairs and return them to the nearest Kohl’s store, according to the news release. Customers with receipts will receive full refunds, while those without receipts will receive store credits.
