Recall La Z Boy 188x210 Power supplies sold with La Z Boy lift chairs under recall due to shock hazardLa-Z-Boy, an American furniture chain known for its signature recliners, has announced a recall of nearly 2,500 power supplies sold with lift chairs. According to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), the recalled power supply’s cover may crack within its screw housing and break, allowing the cover to detach and expose dangerous electrical components, posing a shock hazard. The lift chairs themselves are not impacted by the power supply recall.

The power supply recall involves all power supplies sold with the following Gold Series electric Lift Chairs:  the Clayton Luxury-Lift (Model 1HL562) and Power Lift (Model 1ML562), and Luxury-Lift (Models 1LF505 and 1LF819). The power supplies were also sold as part of conversion kits for the following older model lift chairs: 1LL320, 1LL508, 1LL515, 1LM320, 1LM508 and 1LM515.

The recalled power supply allows the lift chair’s seat to rise from a seated into a standing position. Each power supply casing is plastic and black in color. The rectangular box measures approximately 6 inches by 3 ½ inches by 3 ½ inches. The only power supplies impacted by this recall feature LOT #150113 printed on the back.
