All incidents occurred between 2006 and 2016 when a cart carrying a “box” television overturned and landed on children. Children were not under direct supervision at the time, and no adults were injured.

According to Health Canada, carts can become unstable when carrying heavy objects.

Carts manufactured in the USA include 3 base models: WT42 “Tuffy” plastic cart. W42/AVJ42/SS-AVJ42 metal carts; and LP-DUO/TPDUOEQ plastic carts.

The US Consumer Product Safety Commission says about 84,700 of the recalled carts were sold in the US.

About 4,150 carts were sold in Canada from the early 1980s through April 2023, according to Health Canada.

As of April 12, Luxor Workspaces has not received any reports of injuries in Canada, Health Canada said in a notice issued Friday.

Canadians are asked to stop using the recalled carts and contact Luxor for a free repair kit.
