La-Z-Boy Inc. said Wednesday it is recalling power supplies sold with lift chairs because of a shock hazard. The maker of recliners and other furniture said the lift chair's power supply cover can crack and end up detaching and exposing the electrical components, which could give users an electric shock. No injuries have been reported so far. "Consumers should immediately stop using the power supplies to power the lift chairs and contact La-Z-Boy for a free replacement power supply," the company said. About 2,500 units are affected, 210 of which were sold in Canada. The recall involves: Gold Series electric Lift Chairs, the Clayton Luxury-Lift (Model 1HL562) and Power Lift (Model 1ML562), and Luxury-Lift (Models 1LF505 and 1LF819), said the company. Consumers can contact La-Z-Boy toll-free at 855-592-9087 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Eastern Monday through Friday. La-Z-Boy shares were down 0.7% in early trade, but have gained 41.5% in the last 12 months, outperforming the S&P 500's 23.5%.
