Aldi recalls popular furniture product over injury fears

A popular recliner chair sold at Aldi has been recalled over fears it may cause “serious injury” to the people using it.

Aldi issued the recall overnight, saying the chair can be identified by the SOHL FURNITURE label attached to it.

According to Product Safety Australia, the identifying label can be found on the back of the footrest.


“The recliner chair may be unstable and may tip over during use,” the recall notice reads.

“If the chair tips over during use, there is a risk of serious injury to the chair’s occupant and bystanders and/or damage to property.”


The recliner has been available for sale from Aldi stores across the country between 20 January 2021 to 22 February 2021.

People are being warned to immediately stop using the chair and to return it to any ALDI store for a full refund.
