About 7,000 Modular Storage Bars have been recalled by Cost Plus Management Services Inc., of Oakland, Calif. When weight is applied to the storage bar, the screws holding the mounting plate can pull out of the bar allowing the storage bar to fall, posing an injury hazard. The recall includes wall-mounted storage bars made of medium-density fiberboard with an oak wood finish that allow hanging storage accessories to be attached. The storage bars were sold in two sizes; long and short. The long bar is 36 inches in length and the short bar is 23.5 inches in length. The accessories are sold separately and include items such as a black metal mesh basket, key hooks and S-hooks. The storage bars have SKU numbers 491996 (long) and 491997 (short) printed on the UPC sticker attached to the product packaging. There are no identifying labels on the product itself. The company has received one report of a short storage bar pulling away from the wall. No injuries have been reported.
The bars were sold at Cost Plus World Market and World Market stores nationwide and online at www.worldmarket.com from June 2014 through August 2014 for between about $20 and $25. Consumers should immediately stop using the storage bars and return them to any Cost Plus World Market or World Market store for a free replacement. Contact Cost Plus World Market toll-free at 877-967-5362 from 7 a.m. to midnight ET daily or online at www.worldmarket.com and click on “Product Recalls” for more information.
