Signature Hardware is recalling wall-mounted shower seats due to fall and laceration hazards.

According to the United States Consumer Product Safety Commission, the aluminum hardware supporting the shower seat can corrode, causing falls and lacerations to consumers.

Signature Hardware has received 194 reports of the shower seats breaking, including 37 reports of falls without injuries and 23 reports of injuries. Injuries have included scrapes and bruises, three reports of lacerations, and one report of lumbar fractures. Consumers with lacerations received stitches.

The folding shower seats are made of teak wood slats joined together by support rods that extend from two wall mounting brackets. The seats have brushed nickel, chrome, or oil-rubbed bronze finishes on the support rods and bracket covers. The product measures 16-inches wide by 13.5-inches deep, with a width of 11.75-inches between the centers of the wall mounting brackets.

Consumers are encouraged to immediately stop using the product and contact Signature Hardware for a full refund. The recall number is 19-043 and the SKU number, 917726, is printed on purchase receipts and email order confirmations.

About 7,200 units were sold in the U.S. and about 80 were sold in Canada.
