Brooks Furniture recalls glider rockers

Brooks Furniture recalled about 350 glider rockers because the spindles in the glider base can separate while rocking, posing a fall hazard to the user. They were sold exclusively by Kaplan Early Learning

The recall includes two styles of Brooks Furniture glider rockers 1529P and 1529V-LM.  The 1529P glider rocker has a maple wood frame with blue fabric upholstery. The 1529V-LM glider rocker has a maple wood frame with beige vinyl upholstery and a locking mechanism to disengage the glider.

The company has received 29 reports of the chair’s spindles separating or loosening on the base of the glider rockers. No injuries have been reported.
