Big Lots issued a voluntary recall of ottomans, sold exclusively at their stores, because they have the potential to collapse during use, posing a fall hazard to consumers.
To this date, the company has received 19 reports of consumers falling through the center of ottomans. In six cases there were minor injuries reported which included bruises, scratches, back pain and contusions.
