Crate and Barrel, of Northbrook, Illinois, has recalled around 830 Josephine floor mirrors because the mirror’s glass can separate from the wooden backing and fall, posing a laceration hazard (CPSC Recall Notice, No. 18-190, July 18, 2018).
Incidents and injuries. Crate and Barrel has received three reports of the mirror glass becoming loose or separating from the wooden backing. No injuries have been reported.
