How to know if your furniture is included in the recall
Stapled under one of the footrests, there will be a white label attached with a SERIAL NUMBER printed on it. The label also shows what OPTIONS were produced on your furniture.
If your furniture shows an option of “WP” then your furniture IS involved in the recall.
If the label does not indicate “WP” your furniture is NOT involved in the recall.
